I grew up in Salford where I attended a Saturday morning art class for Salford kids run by artist Harold Riley a friend of L.S. Lowry. I then spent some time as an art student in Leicester and London, but didn't feel I fitted the art world at that time. So I did a degree in psychology, and then worked as a prison psychologist, before moving into commerce and becoming a business psychologist. All along the way I've pursued art. My main interest in recent years has been portraiture. I found that the psychologist angle was good for portraits. It meant getting into the personality of the sitter, not just the features. I am a strong advocate of life drawing, practicing as a member of a group which meets weekly in Evesham. I now lecture at Worcester University and also try to spend more time painting. I work in pencil, charcoal, acrylics and oils.
