Born in Sydney and raised in London, I was taught by Kyffin Williams RA before attending Norwich School of Art. Although I’ve been painting since childhood I studied photography and pursued a career in television. I’ve been exhibiting professionally since 1996 and shown all over England and parts of the Irish Republic. There examples of my work in a number of private collections around the world. I now live in North Norfolk.
Much of my work is inspired by travel. Although I was originally known for my landscapes and maritime subjects, I’ve since gained a reputation for collectable figure work. Distinctive for their rich colour and innovative techniques including texturing with tissue paper and marble dust, my work varies widely in size but is united by what I’ve tried to capture in each : colour, texture and light.
