I began a 4 year apprenticeship in 1980 as a Commercial Artist working for McCaffrey Bennett, a small graphics studio in Liverpool.
During this time I also attended art classes at the Liverpool Institute and studied life drawing, painting and art history.
Since then I’ve worked continuously as an illustrator, photo retoucher, graphic designer, typographer, and also graphics studio manager in advertising agencies before starting my own studio.
I love painting and use many different mediums but work mainly with watercolours, ink and also acrylic. I’ve always lived in Liverpool, and I try to capture the feel of my favourite areas of the city in my work.
My Liverpool paintings are regularly exhibited, and sell internationally. They have also featured in several publications including Artist & Illustrators magazine, in a feature on ‘Master’s of Watercolour’.
I am happy to paint special commissions for customers. If you have any questions please drop me a line using the details on the contact page.
