Born in London in 1954, I trained at Watford and Exeter Art Colleges but soon found myself investigating the techniques of the old masters rather than following the path of abstract expressionism and conceptual art practiced by many of my contemporaries.

I have worked as a professional artist for some 25 years, mainly doing commissioned work for interior design projects and private collectors. Commissions have come from as far afield as South Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, Europe, New York, Tokyo, Mexico and Somerset.

Recently I've been revisiting abstraction which I used to enjoy in my student days. What I've found is that it's all too easy to do abstraction badly and extremely difficult to do well. As Degas said “Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do."
