Background / CV
I am an English Painter who works mainly in southern France.

I was trained for seven years in English Art Schools, including three years at the Royal College of Art, London (School of painting).

Later I spent some years as Principal of the Salisbury College of Art in southern England, until I decided to return to France to work on the landscape there.

I have since had two major solo exhibitions in southern France. The first at LA MAISON Latine de Monaco in Monte Carlo in June 1997.  (right)
"Musee Espace Bonnard exhibition" and "exhibition at Monaco"
The second, (above) at the invitation of the Municipale at Le Cannet (Cannes) in their rather famous MUSEE ESPACE BONNARD between April and July 2000.

This Web site includes images from that exhibition and a copy of a NICE MATIN Arts article written by the premier critic for southern France Mon Frederic Altmann who is also director for the International Centre for Contemporary Art in Carros, Nice. (click here)

In 2002 I made excursions into the New York gallery environment (Spring street , N Y), and more recently I have been exhibiting in two London Galleries, including Petley Fine Art in Cork street, Picadilly.

Since graduating from the painting school of the Royal College of Art my work has been bought by a number of distingished bodies, including :

  • Professor Quentin Bell , for the University of Leeds, fine art department from an exhibition at the Royal College of Art.
  • Coventry Education Committee for the Haselgrave Gallery Coventry , from the Kensington Gore Galleries.
  • Cleveland Public Art Gallery from an exhibition at the Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle.
  • Purchases from the Royal Academy Schools and the Royal Society of British Artists Galleries, London , among many others.

later, if you would be interested to see some of this in the flesh I can easily arrange to deliver 6 works to your Gallery. I look forward to hearing from you.
