Originally from South Yorkshire, I studied Business Management in Cardiff and Fine Art in Sheffield. I lived in the Snowdonia village of Rhyd-Ddu from 1985 until 2004, learned the Welsh language and have a close affinity with life in Wales. I have run and walked most of the mountains and hills here and though my landscape paintings and drawings are rarely specific to one recognisable place, they endeavour to express certain essential dramatic and lyrical qualities of the North Wales environment.

I have been a full-time painter since 2000 and have held solo exhibitions in numerous North Wales venues such as; Theatr Gwynedd, Theatr Clwyd Cymru, Wrexham Arts Centre, Oriel Corwen, Royal International Pavillion, Llangollen and at Oriel Plas Glyn y Weddw, Llanbedrog, where I was Chairman of the Board of Management for four years.

I am told that my work is vigorous and energetic; certainly my response to the environment has been both physical and emotional and maybe this comes across. I am currently influenced by the landscape of Clwyd, and the urban environment of Chester, Manchester and Sheffield. My most recent work reflects my interest in "family history" hence a series of "figure-scapes", searching for the rhythm of land and figure, often in primordial settings. All of this and with reference to more global issues, I developed on my M.A. Fine Art Course at Glyndwr University, where the subject of "rhythm and gesture in relation to romanticism" was central to my studies which I completed in 2011.
