“I like to work from life as much as possible, and I am currently mentored by the renowned Equestrian and Countryside artist Malcolm Coward HSEA. I have been a member of the SEA for some years and became a Full Member in 2015. I was their Honorary Secretary and Webmaster for six years. I was shocked and honoured to receive the Cuneo Medal in 2017 which is the highest award the Society bestows – voted for by the Full Members of the Society at the Horse in Art Exhibition which takes place at Sally Mitchell’s Gallery in Tuxford. In 2012 I was also honoured to be awarded the John Noott Gallery prize for Best Oil Painting at the Annual Exhibition for the painting “Parthenon”
