Bell House


Framed and unframed oil paintings, watercolours and drawings. My work is figurative and strongly grounded in the observed world;  I paint and draw from what I see, at the same time always looking for visual interest – pictures should be enjoyable!  Subject interest is wide ranging – life and figure drawings, portraits, cityscapes, landscapes and still life, while travel has provided me with a varied and colourful source of material over many years. Currently, lockdown has increased my interest in Still Life painting, which helps me to look, really look! at what I see.


I have sustained a lifelong interest in the unique characteristics of different woods and I particularly enjoy creating bowls, hollow forms and carvings which best display the unique features of each selected piece of timber.  My work is usually intended to be decorative and ornamental rather than functional, although many of my creations are for practical use. I enjoy teaching and am very happy to demonstrate and discuss aspects of my work.
