    Born in Lincolnshire, England

    Living and working in Nottingham, England

     

    His approach to painting explores varied subjects.

    With a strong interest in the depiction of physical reality

    his images are often absorbed, introspective and emotional,

    forming  and re-forming themselves. Observational drawing is the

    basis for his work, combined with a process of building layers of

    textural surfaces to function in contrast.
