Collectors and people who love old cars have bought my paintings from far and wide, from the UK to France, Germany, and from Canada to the USA. For many years I have exhibited with The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour in their annual exhibition in the Mall Galleries London and I was awarded a prestigious prize on one of these occasions.
I always welcome photographs or information from the public about places where old abandoned vehicles can be seen so that my inspiration and subject matter is kept fresh and original.
