I am a British artist, and until 2009 I lived in Keswick in the beautiful Lake District of England. But now I live near a small town called Zurgena in the Almeria region of Spain (Andalucia), with my lovely wife Donna.
I have painted and drawn for as long as I can remember, and finally turned professional in 2000. I enjoy painting in watercolours, acrylics and oils.
I wrote and published the online watercolour course in the Spring of 2005, and in 2006 added the acrylics course. The drawing course and the watercolour pencils course were published in 2008, and the oil painting course in 2009.
Since 2005 I have seen thousands of people worldwide learn to paint with me.
I have taught an adult education class in painting for many years, and continue to do so now. I have also organised and lead several painting holidays in the UK in Spain and in Portugal, taking groups of 6-12 people to wonderful and beautiful locations to draw and paint for 5-7 days at a time. I have also tutored classes for The Derwent Pencil Company.painting kids
I believe that anyone can learn to paint if given clear and easy instructions, and I have always tried to motivate and encourage everyone to paint, whatever their ability. Join me on one of my online courses and see how you too can learn to paint!
