Born in Surrey, discovering art & craft in father's workshop and from local artists, "My first paintings at 17 managed to get accepted at the Surrey County open show, I started a civil engineering degree at Lanchester Poly, but the brilliant art library and conversation and friendships with art students pulled me back to art in the 80s. Again in the 90s university art lecturers and full time artists developed my painting and I began drawing sculpture, and looking to the history of art and trained in tutoring."

By 2000 he was going out making art in the community, employed in tutoring and workshops, alongside making his own painting and sculpture pieces.
