NarrowBoat Art was started as an excuse not to polish the brass and copper in my home. As a coach driver I had seen narrow boats at destinations like Oxford and Stratford, and therefore attempted to paint the brass and copper in the style that I had seen on my travels.

Luckily for me, my partner Viv, liked what I had painted and this continued to a point whereby we ran out of space to display the items I had painted.

This lead to local craft fairs whereby I could display my work and hopefully sell a few items. Unfortunately as I live in Sussex on the coast with the English Channel, narrow boats are not seen very often.
Over the years we have been to many of the canal festivals and boat gatherings, but now we can be found once a year at Braunston for the Historic Boat Rally.
