I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design.
I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher’s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall’s most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world.
In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live in the village of Las Negras in the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata, Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic landscapes of Andalucia and its cities, old towns and villages which I normally capture in watercolour. I also like to do figurative work in pastel particularly of dancers and nudes.
