I've been making a study of trees: form, meaning, and the occasional splash of colour. The word "book" comes from the Germanic word for beech, and it's remarkable how much can be read from a tree. Some are history books; others hint at fantastic tales; others still hold deep truths. All you have to do is look.

Artists record their looking and allow others to see through their eyes. Perhaps my inky drawings of trees will show you something new. Maybe they will remind you of something important. Or it could just be that you share my delight in the aboreal.

I have recently had some sucess with national Open Exhibitions. Last year, I had two drawings in the Discerning Eye Exhibition. This year, three of my drawings have been accepted into the Society of Graphic Fine Arts Centenary exhibition, which is to be held in London (and online) in July.

I also have a few handmade sketchbooks available.
