Background and recent exhibitions

Background

I’ve always had a passion for painting. I grew up holding paintbrushes and pencils as both my parents were artists.

In due course, I studied History of Art at Cambridge University and later attended the Julian Ashton Art School, the longest established fine art school in Australia.

Whilst pursuing a business career, I continued to paint and draw in parallel and exhibited paintings at various galleries, including the Royal College of Art and the Mall Galleries.

My work is held in numerous private collections in the UK and overseas.

Currently, I paint and draw and carry out portrait commissions from my studios in Dorset and London alongside various business interests and charitable activities.

In 2015, I held a successful solo exhibition at the Chelsea Gallery in London, opened by the Major of Kensington & Chelsea, Cllr Robert Freeman (see photo). The exhibition was very well received, with over 40% sold, and £5,000 raised for charity.

In 2016 and 2017, I have exhibited / will be exhibiting at Guggleton Farm Gallery, Stalbridge, and Newland Gallery, Sherborne, as well as at locations further afield.
