At the end of August the Guild celebrates its 30 Year Jubilee with a two-day program of events in Grindelwald.

Throughout the month members are showing examples of their work in a number of the Grindelwald hotels. My two paintings of the Wetterhorn and the Eiger & Jungfrau (right) can be seen in the Hotel Résidence, Rybigässli 3, near the church.
The Wetterhorn in winter, viewed from Alpiglen on the way from Grindelwald up to the Kleine Scheidegg.
The north face of the Eiger dominates the view from the path between First and the Bachalpsee, with the Jungfrau appearing on the right.

Born in 1942, I grew up in England but it was books about the Alps and Himalaya that opened a window on the world of hills and mountains, and awakened my interest in photography and landscape painting.
Having learned in my early years the basic skills of drawing and painting I started to use acrylics in the 1980s and have developed my technique in this medium ever since.
For over 30 years I have lived in Switzerland, working at first as an IT professional in the chemical industry and then as a self-employed website designer.
In my spare time I was able to pursue my artistic interests and was accepted as a member of the Guild of Swiss Mountain Painters in 1995, serving on the committee as exhibition organiser and webmaster between 2000 and 2012.
You can read here my Artist Statement and my views on quality and aesthetics in the art of landscape painting.
Since 1985 I have participated in many exhibitions, which has given me the opportunity to show my work to a wider audience and to offer original works and reproductions for sale.
For many years I have exhibited not only in and around Basel but also in many parts of Switzerland, thanks to my membership of the Guild of Swiss Mountain Painters.
A chronological summary of the various exhibitions, with details of date, venue and the works shown is given in the Exhibition List.
