Bio

After training at London College of Printing, Sir John Cass School of Art and Camberwell School of Art, I went on to work as a scenic painter in the West End of London in the 80's before setting up a business creating signage,faux finishing and creating fine pieces of art in New Zealand.

Since returning to the UK in the early 2000's I have concentrated entirely on painting in oil and acrylic and now live in the Channel Islands. Most of my work looks to folkloric tales of the landscape for inspiration. Recently I have been looking at William Le Lacheur, a prominent coffee importer with economic and emotional ties to Costa Rica and creating a body of work relating to his life and achievements.
