My retrospective is being previewed at The Inspired By Gallery at the Moors Centre Danby on the 16th September; this represents over sixty years in the practise. I studied at Scarborough, Middlesbrough and Leeds colleges of Art in the 50s, and later at Northumbria University for a Masters Degree at the end of a teaching career, 1988-90. I painted from first leaving college but devoted the whole of my time to the practise in my early fifties form 1990.
My work now is centred on landscape mostly, as my daughter says: “it is his metaphor for his concern”. I have shown widely throughout Britain, Maclaughren galleries Ayr, Norwich, Hereford, Oxford, throughout the North and in London at Messums. I presently have work with Zillah Bell, Chantry House, and Coast Galleries. Most recent shows: “In Tandem”, Countryside Museum Hawes, with my daughter Beverley, and commemorative show in The Gallery Gateshead.
Venue: East View, High Street
