I have been drawing and painting most of my life and studying it and various design fields more formally for over thirty years. I have studied graphic design, environmental planning and urban design at universities in Manchester and Liverpool and also fine art at colleges and private art schools specialising in traditional processes and media. Over my career so far I have worked in the fields of archaeological illustration, graphic design and town planning / urban design. I now concentrate on painting full-time.
I work directly from the subject whenever possible, mainly on portraits, figures, and urban landscapes.
