In the 1990’s I completed degrees at Leicester Polytechnic and Kingston University.
From then on like many artists it was a matter of survival, trying to earn enough while finding time to work. I worked at Kingston College and Brunel University as a drawing lecturer; travelling around signwriting blackboards and decorating houses.
Around 2000 I moved to France for 4 years, painting and drawing full time. Initially the small village of Cambieure, Aude took me in and then I bought a small house in nearby Limoux.
I was luckily enough to meet my wife Natalie in 2002. We live in South-West corner of London with our two children Effie and Jack (when they are at home)
For many years I worked towards solo exhibitions and completed commissions. During the 2010s I balanced life as a dad (looking after the children) and adapted my work schedule to include more group exhibitions and illustration work. In the 2020s I look forward to re-engaging with some more personal themes as well as new adventures with collaborators.
