Born in 1966, he studied Fine Art and Photography at Highfields Sixth Form College and Wolverhampton College of Art. He is first and foremost a purveyor of landscape painting and the understanding of weather. How it changes mood with the movement of light, to its effect on the geology and topography over time. He works in both painting and photography letting the two try to inform the other practice. His inspiration comes from nature and standing outside, taking in the visual pleasures of a storm developing and its impact on a landscape.
