Welcome to my website. I spend most of my life drawing, or painting, or writing, or teaching other people to paint and draw. Well, it beats having a proper job.
I have a particular obsession with boats and the sea, which is why being asked to write and illustrate the Royal Yachting Association Go! series of children’s books was the best job in the world. The series starts with ‘Go Sailing’ and covers everything you can do on the water, from canal boats to windsurfing to marine conservation. Have a look at my books pages for the full range of RYA books and Log Books.
If you read Practical Boat Owner magazine, you’ll find my cartoon every month illustrating the ever so slightly bonkers Mad About the Boat column. Less silly but equally nautical are the drawings and occasional articles I do for Sam Llewellyn’s Marine Quarterly magazine.
Visit my studio
If you’re anywhere near the River Deben in Suffolk, my studio is at Waldringfield Boatyard. I have space in the boatshed to work as well as sell stuff – both my own artwork and others’ too. I’m around most days between now and Christmas – call in and say hello. Phone number is 01473 736260 if you want to check that I’m open before travelling.
Year planners are now in – available from the studio or online. Christmas cards and other goodies will be in the online shop soon.
