As a child I drew and always wanted to draw. I took a Foundation course and then studied Graphics at Wimbledon. A couple of years freelancing later I promptly went into the catering business opening a Hard Rock style restaurant in the 80s followed by a french bistro in the 90s. (I also managed a restaurant which had a World War 1 Bi – plane hanging in it’s building’s reception!).
Although the restaurant business was pretty much all work and no play, I did manage to attend life drawing classes whenever possible. Twenty five years or so later with the encouragement of my wife Estelle and two children, we changed our lifestyle and moved lock, stock and drawing board to the Norfolk fens. Having saved an old brick cart shed in the garden from demolition, I converted it into a studio and began drawing again.
My drawing preference has always been comics, but it’s true to say I’ll draw anything I lay my eyes on – from cats to tractors, and wheel barrows to windmills. Pen & Ink is my preferred medium, and I have finally wandered into the use of watercolour. I exhibit locally and have sold work in England and abroad. With the aid of my trusty mac I have translated my work into greetings cards, prints and bookmarks and also accept commissions
