After leaving school I spent three years studying at the Medway College of Design where I obtained a diploma in technical graphics. On leaving college I worked for twenty years in the graphics Industry supplying illustration & camera ready artwork to companies both in the UK & abroad. It was while working in London during the 1970s that I first developed an interest in animal portraiture & since that time I have undertaken many commissions in this genre. My work is highly detailed & done primarily with graphite pencils or acrylic paint on watercolour board. Recently I have had my work exhibited in galleries located in the Medway & Thanet areas of north Kent.
