The artist came to Cornwall to settle in 1978, after studying at the Oxford School of Art, followed by teacher training and teaching posts which included two years on the Isle of Skye mountaineering. His final teaching post prior to turning to full-time painting was five years as an Art Tutor at Fitzharry's School, Abingdon, Oxford.
In Cornwall, he took an active part in NSA activities, and served on the Council of Management of Newlyn Orion Gallery and as Chairman of Council in 1987-89. He exhibited in many mixed shows, and held a one-man exhibition in 1988.
