In his own words...
I passed an entrance examination to Hornsey College of Art in 1951 where I studied for five years gaining a NDD qualification in the final year.
From 1956 to 1958 I served in the Army as a National Serviceman. On leaving the forces I gained employment at a London advertising agency after which I worked in several agencies, firstly as a typographer and subsequently managing in-house studios. The last ten years of employment was spent running an independent studio as a freelance artist supplying artwork to London agencies.
Now retired and living in Bognor Regis I spend considerable time painting railway subjects mostly indispersed with planes, cars and as a change local landscape scenes. My chosen medium is a combination of gouache and pastel although I also indulge in oils and pen and pencil.
