Statement

I was born in London in 1961 and began my practice as a professional public artist soon after leaving Art College in 1984. I have travelled extensively across Europe, the Middle East and the Far East and have studied a number of foreign languages including Arabic and Chinese.

Developing and exploring my work as an artist has taken me into many different areas including newspaper and magazine current affairs cartoons; book illustration; banner making; vehicle painting; Mural painting including, Buon Fresco painting; digital print processes; QR code works; mosaics and Keim Murals.

In my mosaic work I have gained an international reputation and have had my work feature at the Mosaic Arts International’ exhibition for the last seven years running. I have spoken and taught on mosaic across the USA and in the UK and am a former President of the British Association for Modern Mosaic.
