He says: I am self taught and work in acrylic. Most of my paintings are based on my observations of people and reflect my day to day life - at home with the family, commuting to and from London, using the tube, working in an office. Body shapes and expressions fascinate me. I am interested in compositions involving a number of people - the tube and commuting gives me a lot of inspiration for this. I try and look for a humourous element in these paintings - a situation which can be identified with and related to. To convey this idea I have found that the title is often particularly important. If the title strikes a chord it really enhances the image. In addition to these "people" paintings I am also very interested in still life painting. This is principally from the point of view of trying to make colours work together and harmonise. If that balance is achieved I think the painting has a tremendous impact and really holds the eye.
He exhibits extensively in London galleries and is very well collected.
His RA Summer exhibition entry ‘Discussing Beryl’s Bypass’ was chosen as one of the RA postcards.
