My love of painting started as a small child after being influenced by my late Grandfather F H Ford, this, in turn, led me into my lifelong profession as an Illustrator, during which time I worked for some of the largest publishing houses in London and New York.
I have Illustrated over 50 books and been involved in many interesting and varied projects within the advertising and publishing industry.
When I reached retirement age I decided to carry on my love of painting and concentrate on producing works of art for sale through various galleries in East Anglia, including several exhibitions at The Gallery, Holt. My work covers many genres painted mainly in Watercolour.
In 2015 I entered my first IEA open exhibition and was honoured to win the President’s prize. Subsequently, I attained my full membership in 2019 and was also elected a member of the IEA Council.
