I was born in Launceston Tasmania Australia in 1944.
Following the end of the war my mother and I joined my father in the U.S. and we moved to Michigan.
I served in Vietnam in 1966-67 and subsequently in Germany for two years. It was while I was in Europe that I developed a love of the arts.
I founded a plastics decorating company in 1976. Since retired from that company, I continue to have a passion for the arts and am currently working with acrylics in my hometown of Oxford.
