My Occupation Artist and art instruction author
My Bio I have been a painter/tutor/writer for over 30 years. As well as exhibiting my work regularly, I have also contributed to a large number of art instruction books and I have written 7 art instruction books which have been translated into various languages and sold world-wide, together with prints of my work. I have won awards for my paintings in the UK, and I was granted full signature membership of the Pastel Society of America in the '90's. I still write regular articles for The Artist magazine in the UK, and I write a weekly art blog, which has a strong following and is growing all the time. This book is a celebration of my life as a painter.
