He attended the Kent institute of Art and Design, training in communication media, (92/96) and printmaking where he was awarded commendation in 1995, and prior to that Eastbourne college of Art and Design. Described by Gillian Duke  (CCA Galleries) as ‘Painting like a printmaker’ and his work like ‘Psychological Landscapes’ by BBC arts correspondence and Soho Radios Maeve Doyle. Printmaking has been a huge part of his output and Saatchi gallery hosted a print retrospective in 2016.

“Colour is the driving force in my Compositions, I’m obsessed with colour, I think about the colour before I know the composition, I think in that sense I do paint like a printmaker, building up my works in layers until the balance is perfect between the elements I’ve selected, usually a play between life and death, nature and man” -
“For the egg I was torn between monochrome, then gold leaf, then candy land, but after some sketches wanted to focus on a 4 colour approach, baby pink, white, black and candy blue.”
