I was born in St Helens in 1958. Artistic talent ran in my family though I was the first to develop my skills professionally. I recall asking for sets of paints as birthday presents when I was very young and frequently came top in art at school demonstrating talent from an early age.
I went into surveying and estate agency when I left school. After 20years I left the profession and turned professional artist. In the initial years I concentrated on still life though I grew and developed into other genres. I have won several awards from eminent art organisations and my work hangs in private collections in the UK, USA and Australia. I am considered to be a realist painter of both classical and contemporary subjects.
