Born 1955 in Colchester. I graduated from Norwich School of Art in 1978 and am in my forth decade as an artist. I started my career as a book illustrator and my main subject matter was animals. I held my first solo exhibition of paintings at the Digby Gallery in Colchester in 1981. I had primarily been a watercolour artist but I started painting the landscape and animals in oils, working outside whenever possible. In 1986 I was offered my first London exhibition at the Arthur Ackermann Gallery in Bond Street.
Exhibiting my work at Ackermanns gave me contact with many clients and I have paintings in collections in the UK, Spain, Germany and America.
Moving to Norfolk in the early 1980's has given me an endless source of inspiration for landscape paintings and there is nothing I enjoy more than heading out in all seasons to paint plein air.
