Biography
Having spent all my working life in the Royal Navy, I retired in 2000 and moved to Teignmouth.   I pursued my hobby of oil and watercolour painting in retirement and inspired by the work of Frank Grenier and other members of the Guild I took up glass engraving as a hobby  in 2005.  I am a member of the Armed Forces Art Society and the Teignmouth Art Society and I exhibit locally in and around the Teignmouth area.  Commissions include work for Rotary Clubs, Town Councils, the Exeter Flotilla and the Wilfred Owen Association (WOA).  The WOA 2014 Poetry Award was presented to Sir Andrew Motion at the British Academy in October 2014.   Craft Member of the Guild of Glass Engravers.

Drill and stippling and occasional sandblasting when I can get near a sandblasting cabinet!
