Hello and welcome to Seagull Studio, my on-line gallery. I am a retired theatre designer working now as a painter. I work from a barge in Lancashire close to where I grew up. This is it in the photograph. I lived for twenty-seven years in the Lake District where I did many watercolour paintings of the Cumbrian lakes and fells. I now work mostly in acrylics on canvas which I find more liberating as a medium.
I am especially interested in painting water and reflections, and all kinds of craft from canal boats, narrowboats and barges to sailing and fishing boats. I also like to paint wildlife and flowers.I enjoy doing portraits too, in acrylics, watercolour or pencil. This is a painting of one of our mooring places. Below are some of the neighbours.
I am happy to take commissions for portraits of people, pets, your house or boat, and am willing to work from photographs as long as they are of good quality.
Feel free to browse through my gallery. I hope you find it interesting, and if you have any comments or enquiries donít hesitate to contact me.
If you go to my links page you will see some of the places where I exhibited while I lived in Cumbria.
