Record type: Biographies

Biography: Born in 1944 in London, he studied at Kingston-Upon-Hull College of Art between 1960 and 1964. He worked in London for many years, first with a major advertising agency and then as a freelance illustrator and visualiser before moving to the Isle of Man in 1977.

He became a full-time painter specialising in automobiles after being invited to exhibit in the USA at the Lime Rock Village Fall Meet in Connecticut in 1989. His ability to switch seamlessly between modern-day automobiles and those from the early days of their conception has led to a truly international reputation. He has been a member of the AFAS (Automotive Fine Arts Society) in America since being elected in 1993.
