1926 - 1995. (Celebrating over "60" years of painting).

A Comprehensive study of an English artist at work, in words and images; encompassing all aspects of his output from early childhood to his last sketch in 1995!

I first discovered this artist after being captivated by a wonderful painting of an old wooden hulled boat moored up amid green reeds. The owner was a friend, who suggested contacting the artist's family.

Some weeks later I was invited to visit the artist's widow with a view to seeing her late husband's, studio and works of art. Little did I suspect I was about to enter Aladdin's cave…..hidden away in a West Country artists studio and unseen for all these years - what a sight, wall to wall, painting after painting of traditional old wooden hulled boats and wonderful English landscapes in either oils or watercolours - it was truly breathtaking.

Only later did I realise that despite being a very talented Landscape painter and a potter, he was virtually unknown except to a handful of local friends despite already being well established as an artist by the 1950's with the equivalent to Bachelor of Arts Diplomas for both his painting and pottery.
