Born in Pontypool, I studied fine art in Exeter and lived in Devon for 20 years before moving to East Anglia in 2003, where I now live and work.
Prior to leaving full-time employment to focus on painting I worked in conservation, preserving ceramics, wall-paintings, mosaics, plaster-work and timber in ancient and historic buildings in the UK and Europe, such as the Palace of Westminster, Hampton Court, British Embassy Prague, Berkeley Castle and St. David’s and Winchester Cathedrals.
I was delighted to be elected as a Member to the Royal Society of Marine Artists (RSMA) in October 2016.
As well as showing successfully in a range of galleries,my work has been selected for a large number of open exhibitions and has sold to buyers from the UK, Asia and Europe.
