Born 1947 in Kidderminster, Worcestershire, England

Moved to London in 1967

Moved to Cornwall in 1968

Started painting in 1969

I started painting in an attempt to make a living by doing something that I enjoyed.

For me, back then, Art wasn't about self expression, it was about self preservation!

With little training, my limited knowledge, and my naive approach, I had nothing to hold me back.  Nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Over the years I've developed my own ideas about Art, with my paintings now in many private collections, home and abroad.

As I evolved, so did my work.

My hope is that both will continue to do so.
