I was born in 1950 in the midlands. As a child I played in the abandoned infrastructure of the industrial past:- quarries, canals, ash mounds, huge derelict factories with rusting chains whose links were bigger than me. These experiences have shaped my artistic sensibilities.
I spent six years at various art colleges. My Fine art degree course was at Newport College of Art, in South Wales. There I encountered Welsh mythology.
I worked as an art teacher for a short time but teaching was not for me. I spent thirty years as a Chartered Surveyor. This gave me the world of structures, schematic depiction, measurement, as well as the world of numbers and calculation.
In 2008, I became a full time artist. I am developing my private visual language, which incorporates all of these things.
