My love of canals and working boats began in 1971. A group of us hired an ex working boat (Hawkesbury) from Union Canal Carriers at Braunston and set off, on a journey that has lasted a lifetime.
My painting is not about detail – it’s more about leaving things out than putting them in, leaving room for the viewers imagination to get to work. The subjects of my work are things that have moved me in some way – I seldom work to commission unless the subject matter is something I have directly experienced and responded to.
