With all my work I aim to capture the spirit of the subject and at the same time harness the movement and light.
From a young boy I have always painted images that fascinated me, concentrating on the native wildlife around me. After leaving school I served an apprenticeship at P & A Woods, restoring the coachwork on Rolls Royce motorcars, some of which belonged to the Royal family. The skills I learnt during my apprenticeship were later channelled into my sculpting.
I left the Rolls Royce garage to pursue my art career full time and when I started scuba diving the wealth of marine wildlife and underwater scenes captured my imagination and I started exhibiting my marine works in 1999 and I haven't looked back since.
In 1993 and 2008 I had work accepted at the Royal Academy summer exhibition. I won the Essex Chronicle Award for Art in 1995 and also best past winner in 1999. In 1996 and 2001 my work was exhibited at The Society of Wildlife Artists exhibition at the Mall Gallery London. I also received the silver medal award at the Wildlife Art Society 2000 exhibition in Bristol.
In 2004 I was a finalist for the Daily Mail's "Not the Turner Prize" where I was invited to exhibit at the Mall Gallery in London.
I had my first public installation at Writtle, Argricultural College, Chelmsford in 2008. The sculpture named "Seeds of Time" consists of three 6 foot long sycamore seeds suspended from the ceiling of the College Library.
