Until seventeen years ago, I had only visited the region of Umbria once. That was in 1970. Then I never expected to make my home there.
In 1999, my wife, Katherine, and I came to live in the green heart of Italy, Umbria. In doing so we have been blessed with its beauty, and the warmth of its people, and their generosity of spirit.
I have been referred to as a ‘Romantic Painter’. What better environment to try and perpetuate that then in the beauty of Umbria. A land of magical light and colour, which changes from season to season and frequently, from hour to hour.’
