The artist was born in Essex and studied art at the Central School of Art, London. First discovering Cornwall, on a camping trip during student days, he has been living and working in Cornwall since 2006, first in nearby St Just in Penwith, and now in Penzance.
His paintings were greatly encouraged and inspired by David HAUGHTON and later by Alexander MACKENZIE, Roger HILTON and Peter LANYON. His work can be ascribed largely to the abstract modern style, and he has exhibited widely in the UK and locally at the Salt House Gallery, St Ives, the Great Atlantic Gallery, St Just and the St Ives Arts Club. He has also painted and exhibited as part of the group of abstract artists calling themselves the Group of 7.
