“I haven't had an exhibition for a long time and especially not just on my own. It's on until October 3.

“I have lived in Midhurst for 30 years. I was head of art at Midhurst Grammar School and Midhurst Rother College and also taught art at Chichester Free School.

“My current exhibition is a culmination of work based on under the sea. I started doing images based on coral and plankton, the amazing shapes and diverse creatures from the underwater world. I developed these into my own imaginary seascapes with strange and wonderful life in a vivid space full of colour and shapes.

“The work starts on canvas or board or paper with inks, either Bombay inks or sometimes alcohol inks and then I use acrylic to get the top layer, mostly using acrylic pens as there is much detail in the complex images.”
