I was born in Southport, Merserside in 1966 and, today, live in Poole, Dorset with my wife, Andrea. I have painted since I was a child, graduating to oils in my early teens. I am, intentionally, completely self - taught, hoping in this way to develop my own style of painting. I have painted most subjects in many styles, but usually find myself returning to a handful of subjects including French cafe and market scenes, floral scenes and paintings inspired by the Dorset area in which I live.
I have exhibited my work in galleries throughout the UK and Europe and frequently hold solo and take part in shared exhibitions, particularly in the UK.
