I was born in Pembroke, Wales in 1958 and grew up in Mumbles near Swansea, Wales, UK.

After studying painting at Chelsea School of Art and Bath Academy of Art, Corsham from 1976 - 1980, I lived in London for ten years. There during the 80's I ran a painting studio and assisted the painter Howard Hodgkin.

Based in the West of Ireland from 1991, with my young family, I prepared a number of one-man exhibitions of paintings for galleries throughout Europe (see list below).

In 1998 I was artist in residence to the city of Munich having been shortlisted for the John Moores prize in ‘97.

I moved with my family to Guéthary near Biarritz in the South West of France in 2002 from where I continued to make paintings and mount exhibitions.

From 2007 I divided my time between Paris and Biarritz, shooting editorial photographs, particularly reportage and travel for the French edition of Marie Claire, while continuing to make paintings.

In May 2016 I moved to Amsterdam, where I now have a studio.
