After leaving school I moved to Paris to study drawing at the Academie Charpentier.

I returned to England to take a degree in Politics, before working at sea in sail training for five years, primarily for the Ocean Youth Trust, becoming Staff Skipper of the 68” ketch Lord Rank in Northern Ireland.

In 2001 I moved to Italy to study under the American painter Charles Cecil in Florence.

I work from life in a traditional style, whilst trying to express as much as possible the character and personality of each subject.

Now based in London I take commissions for portraits in oils and charcoal. I also have experience in a variety of other work for clients, including creating copies of valuable family portraits and drawings.
