I was born in 1959 in Newport Monmouthshire. I have always been interested in painting and drawing and studied Fine Art at at Cardiff Art College (University of Wales in Cardiff) 1978-1981 and received a BA (hons) degree. I have exhibited fairly widely including at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, Stowell's Trophy exhibition, a number of Eisteddfods in Wales, and in a variety of mixed and solo exhibitions at public and private Galleries in London and throughout the UK. I have works in private collections in the UK and Worldwide and also one or two public collections. I now live and work in Cardiff. Although primarily a representational painter I also occasionally do abstract works and work in other creative mediums such as Digital media, Video, Photography, Graphic Design etc.
