Born Wynyard Tasmania 1946. Did art at high school, but nothing more until on a working holiday in South Africa and Zimbabwe as a young man.
During 1970s and 1980s made half my living from painting Tasmanian Landscapes. Had my own gallery during the 80s, and many exhibitions around Tasmania. But, I really enjoy painting portraits most.
I have in more recent times gone back to Africa, in fact first painted murals in Botswana. Now retired in Sheffield and involved in local community art projects.
