I paint on location or on 'plein-air' and I this achieves a distinctive feel in my seascapes and landscapes. I live and work in Whitby in North Yorkshire, England although I have travelled further afield and visited places such as the West Coast of Scotland and Italy to paint in my trusty camper van. I used to live in Cowes on the Isle of Wight up until 2014 so this still features quite heavily on my website, especially my images of sailing.
A selection of my work is made in to limited edition prints, and I have a big collection of greeting cards which are very popular - I make them myself and the images are printed with high quality inks.
Please enjoy my site, don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. You are welcome to purchase any of my work, Free postage to UK and some European countries, but there will be a surcharge for some places such as Japan and Canada. I will give a refund on the pieces (not the postage) if they are returned within 14 days.
The paintings arrived this morning and they are just perfect. Thank you very much.

Thanks for an enjoyable day. I picked up plenty of good tips regarding colour mixing and enjoyed trying to paint the waves.

We are the proud owners of a print of Hilary’s sketchbook paintings: ‘A trip through New York on Gulliver of Southampton.’ It is great – we love its colours, fomat, writing, sense of presence and adventure in a captured place and time.
