Born and educated in West Norfolk and now living in Norwich, I have always had a passion for the art world, painting and drawing as far back as I can remember.
In 1972 I set out as a professional artist, mainly self taught, working on paintings and illustrations for private commissions, industry, architectural development, book publishers and advertising. In 1976 I joined the Guild of Aviation Artists in London which increased my involvement with the aviation industry to research my material.
My work can be found in Government offices, boardrooms and general publication.
I believe it essential, where possible, to experience the realness and be able to have an affinity and understanding of the subject I am painting.
I therefore like to research and collate all my own material which I consider necessary for my work. For my aviation subjects this involves flying with several squadrons of the Royal Air Force in order to gain the experience and detail which I hope shows through.
