Having spent all my working life in the Royal Navy, I retired in 2000 and moved to Teignmouth. I pursued my hobby of oil and watercolour painting in retirement and inspired by the work of Frank Grenier (also a Member of the Armed Forces Art Society) and other members of the Guild I took up glass engraving as a hobby in 2005. I am a member of the Armed Forces Art Society and the Teignmouth Art Society and I exhibit locally in and around the Teignmouth area. I have undertaken many commissions including work for the Rotary Club, the Wilfred Owen Association and the Exeter Flotilla. Craft Member of the Guild of Glass Engravers.
