I was born in 1942 and after art college and several years as a commercial studio illustrator, became a full time self employed artist in 1974. Since then I have been a member of the Guild of  Aviation Artists, awarded the B.A.C. Trophy and Quantas Trophy for aviation paintings, and a member and chairman of the Guild of Railway Artists. I have also exhibited with the Royal Society of Marine Artists and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and had a series of one man shows in London and Monaco .

My main source of inspiration for the last twenty -five years however, has been the depiction of classic and racing motor cars and in this field well over 100 of my works have been published as limited edition prints with well over 70,000 examples sold world wide . I am proud that my paintings hang in public ,corporate and private collections throughout the world and three books of my work have been published;-
