Trained at Falmouth School of Art, and since has had over 20 solo exhibitions and 30 selected group exhibitions in the UK, including many collections of work held internationally. He has maintained his connection with Cornwall and continually returns there to paint. His exuberant and evocative abstractions of rugged coastland, are expressions of his sense of place.
