My father was an amateur painter, so I borrowed his oil paints from the age of 13. He was my greatest influence with his love of the Impressionists and then I discovered Vermeer and Vuillard through my inspirational art school teacher Bernard Dunstan RA. I was elected a member of the New English Art Club and the Royal Society of Portrait Painters. I was Vice President of The RP from 2002 to 2008.
I have been commissioned to paint a wide range of people, most notably in 1981, commissioned by the then Prince of Wales, H.R.H. The Princess of Wales in her wedding dress and in 1997, H.M.The Queen, to celebrate the Royal Automobile Club's Centenary. Although, as you can see from this site, most of my portraits are of less well known people. My Interiors are mostly sold at exhibitions - either with the New English Art Club or through other galleries and dealers. My London gallery is Panter and Hall where I hold solo exhibitions every four years - "Lamplight and Flowers" in 2016, "Looking Through" in 2020 and my next solo exhibition will be in 2024.
