News and events

After graduating from Amersham school of art in 1981 I went into a career in advertising and marketing and earned my living working as an art director.

I'm a self taught painter and work predominantly in oils, specialising in portrait and figurative work, commissions to date include Antony Worrall Thompson and the Lord Mayor of Birmingham.

I also enjoy the challenge of painting outdoors, working at speed to capture fleeting clouds or a setting sun, the light changes so fast and the most dramatic effects can disappear in minutes.

I started painting in 2001 and was elected member of The Royal Birmingham Society of Artists in 2007.

My work has been selected for exhibition with The Royal Society of Portrait Painters at the Mall galleries London on three occasions.
