A self taught artist born in Maldon, Essex, who was educated at Thurstable School in Tiptree. He has developed a passion for painting seascapes since living in Cornwall during his early twenties. This passion has lain dormant until recently when following back surgery, he had to re-think his glazing career of 30 years.
He has now taken his art into a full-time occupation, and is continually honing his skills. Recently he has been mentored by another famous professional Essex born landscape artist.
Although he has painted purely for pleasure during his glazing career, he was re-inspired following holidays to the Maldives and Cyprus which proved inspirational. He paints mainly in oils although he has dabbled in water colours.
