An original painting created from a photograph of Grimsby's old market place taken in 1950. The House With the Blue door drawings come from my love for the coast in Lincolnshire. I draw every day in my sketchbooks using watercolours and inks. My drawing style is unique. It’s very loose, sketchy and full of colour. I like people to look at my work and see something that brings back memories. I also do sometimes go on tour and paint other areas of the country.
My style is really informed by my years of being a calligrapher as you can see in the sweeps of white and black ink on my paintings.
The name The House with the Blue Door comes from the name of my historic chalet on the Humberston Fitties near Cleethorpes.
