Professional artist Janet Shearer was responsible for re-kindling my love of painting and introducing me to what is now my medium of choice – acrylic paints. I can thoroughly recommend her expert tuition – details of which you’ll find on her website, along with examples of her work.

Having got back into painting, I joined Woking Art Society, which proved to be an ideal way of meeting people with similar interests. I’ve learned a huge amount about techniques, working with different media and about art in general at the Society’s monthly demonstrations by professional artists. For my sins, I’m now the Society's Chairman and Exhibitions Secretary!

All the work that appears on this website was produced in Golden Heavy Body acrylic paints, which are particularly good for mural painting and incredibly versatile. While I've tried others, I always come back to Golden for their texture and colour quality. An added bonus is the excellent support via one of the most comprehensive and informative websites I’ve ever come across.
