ABOUT

Having always related to the world around me in an incredibly visual way, drawing and art became a passion of mine from a very early age and continues to be an integral part of my life. I pursued an education in art from the age of sixteen and specialised in graphic design at Newcastle School of Art and Design.

After running my own design agency for well over a decade, working for clients as diverse as the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification), Nintendo and The National Trust, my time and energy is increasingly drawn to oil painting, taking inspiration from my travels, life experiences and the Fens of East Anglia, with their flat lands and large open skies, where I now live with my wife and two sons.

My work has been represented in galleries and is collected internationally.
