PROFILE

Alec was born in Bulford 18th March 1939. At 18 years of age he was called for National Service and signed on as a short service regular for 3 years.  Alec began his military service with the Royal Armoured Corps and joined his father’s old regiment The Royal Scots Greys, transferring to the 7th Queen’s Own Hussars in 1957. 

Alec served with this regiment until his demob in 1960. He drove ambulances at Tidworth Military Hospital  for twenty-six years before taking employment with Stannah Stairlifts for a further twenty-two years.  Alec is now a resident of Ludgershall in Wiltshire.

MY ART

My hobby has always been pencil sketching and I only began oil painting regularly when I retired.  I now cannot seem to stop and have virtually filled all available storage space in our bungalow.   I sell my work mainly at local fetes and exhibitions, 

I regularly display paintings and sketches at the Avon and Bourne Valley Artists annual event at Figheldean.  Some time ago I was invited to display some of my military paintings at Salisbury Cathedral at the Military Chaplains Remembrance service where I met some very interesting people. 

I still sketch in pencil but my main medium is oil on stretched canvas.  I must admit my favourite subjects are military and aviation, both in WW 1 & WW2.   Recently I have moved into celebrities and film star portraits which can be quite challenging,   I also paint animal portraits.
