About me

I was born in London and studied at West Surrey College of Art. I worked as an illustrator for 15 years featuring in Cosmopolitan, Radio Times and the Economist. Among the companies that commissioned my work are the Body shop, Green peace, Penguin, Harper Collins, The National grid, Unilever and Saatchi and Saatchi.

My paintings were sold in the U.S. and Europe, at the Royal Academy Summer exhibitions and through galleries in London, Holland and New York.

I shared a studio and studied sculpture with Ian Walters who’s Mandela in Parliament Square and Harold Wilson in Huddersfield are among many of his portrait sculptures.

I create ceramic sculptures from a socialist viewpoint with three dimensional illustrations made on a domestic scale, highlighting the contradictions in our society. I use historic and religious references to tell stories with a circus of characters.
