A SHORT BIOGRAPHY

 

       After graduating from RADA,  I pursued  a career as a professional actor; working in the Theatre, Cinema and Television. During these years my ability to draw lay dormant,  but with acting engagements becoming less frequent and less satisfying, I had to find an outlet for my creative energies and painting was the obvious choice. At this time any formal training in Art was acquired at London's City Lit and Morley College.

       In 2004 my partner and I bought a small property in Umbria and it was here that I started to apply myself fully to my painting.   

       In 2005 I produced a solo exhibition at the Barbican Library in the City.  Called Icons, it consisted of 18 life size portraits of historical personalities in a contemporary style.

       Having moved to Cambridge in 2009, today I participate annually in Cambridge Open Studios and the city’s largest painting group, the Cambridge Drawing Society .     

    More recently I have had work accepted by the Society of Wildlife Artists and The Pastel Society for shows at London’s Mall Gallery.

     At the present time my output in oils, acrylics and mixed media are in the main Urban Landscapes, with occasional forays into Still Life.
