Bio: I was born in 1954 in Llanelli, Wales and my family immigrated to Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia) when I was five weeks old. I was raised in Africa but returned to Wales to be educated at Llandovery College, Cardiff College of Art and Trinity College Carmarthen, where I trained as an art teacher. I taught in the 'Beacon School', Buckinghamshire, before returning to Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Commissioned in the Rhodesian Army and served in the 1st Battalion Rhodesian African Rifles I then returned to Wales in 1982. For many years I have painted wildlife, military and aviation scenes and recently began painting Welsh landscapes of the Gower and local area. I attained a Bachelor of Education Degree in 1988. Some years ago I took early retirement from teaching art and I am now a full time professional artist.
