" I was born in London in 1954, and started drawing at a very young age, having a natural talent for art. As my ability progressed I developed a skill for technical detail. Proficiency in technical drawing and painting is the foundation of my style. During the early 70's I studied art and design, initially working as a graphic designer, then in 1974 concentrated on my main ambition to work as a professional fine-artist. From this time I worked on portrait commissions and also produced work for exhibitions. My first venture into publishing fine-art prints was in the mid 70's. I have had an interest in automobiles since the late 60's, fuelled by the radical custom cars and hot rods of that era.
"When painting I take a creative approach, subtlely emphasising the individual autos intrinsic design elements. Representing them to create a dynamic balance in the whole image. Considerable technical detail is combined with painterly creativity. My style is both technical and creative."
