BIOGRAPHY

I studied art and design at Norwich and Farnham and took a post­graduate course at the University of Reading. For some years I was head of art in a private school. Since 1999 I have been a professional artist living in Wales. I exhibit, work to commission.

My home, in the small village of Friog, is a short, brisk walk from the sea, hills and woodland. These familiar places have been the focus of my work, but I favour capturing a particular mood rather than a specific location.  My work constantly evolves, is always about light, tends to be peaceful, solitary, contemplative and sometimes a little surreal.
