I was born in Derbyshire England From an early age I was always drawing which led me to my proffession as a Sign artist/ Mural painter
Iv’e always been fasinated by wildlife, which is my first passion with art and photography. I am also fasinated by the female form,and believe it has inspired many artists, both past and present In my thirties I was commissioned to go to America to paint huge murals for the movie industry in Florida.
I emigrated to Australia in 1980 with my wife and two children.
My work has been reproduced in Calendars, Greeting Cards, and for the Maxwell & Williams fine bone china, place mats,coasters and 200mm plates
I hate cruelty to all animals, of any kind I love to meet and interact with other artist and people with simular interests In 2009 I was commissioned by international distributors Maxwell & Williams to produce a series of Australian birds for their Fine Bone China Mugs, Coasters, and Place matts. Also to produce another series called ‘Birds of the World’ which will be available in 2010
