I’ve been sketching since childhood. When I left school, I used my ability to carve a career in display advertising for daily newspapers … well before the computer age!

My inspiration came from the brilliant pen work of book illustrators like Herbert Railton and Hugh Thompson; pen and wash is my favourite medium, but I often add watercolour.

I was born in Upwey, Weymouth and my other hobbies include cricket, tennis and cycling.

My work is currently on sale at The Gallery On The Square, Poundbury and Island Gallery, Easton. I take commissions, particularly from people who want their property sketched.
