The artist was born in London, and studied art at Bournemouth and Poole College of Art. From the Open University he afterwards earned a first class BA (Hons) degree, which included philosophy of art and modern art practice.
Though now permanently based in Dorset (2012), he has painted in Cornwall previously, and readily admits to the influence of modern artists Giorgio Morandi and William SCOTT.
In March, 2012, his landscape and still life paintings of Tuscany featured in a solo exhibition held at the Porthminster Gallery, St Ives.
