Having grown up in a village in the vale of Aylesbury and later a fishing village on the South coast of Cornwall I have had from an early age a strong sense of place, this combined with my interest in nature is at the heart of my work.
After attending the Kings School Gloucester I studied at Dyfed and Falmouth Schools of Art. On leaving I lived in the North Essex village of Great Saling for a year before returning to Cornwall in the early 80's, firstly to a farm on the North coast and then to Cotehele in the Tamar Valley where I now have my studio.
Exhibitions have included: Crow, a one man show at Falmouth Art Gallery, Arts Councilcil/SWA, a related exhibition in Truro Cathedral and the Centenary Show at Truro Museum and Art Gallery. Arts Council/Cornwall county council. From 1994 five one man exhibitions with Beside the Wave, other solo shows have included Alex Gerared, Battle/Robertsbridge, Yew Tree Gallery, Penzance/Slad and Primavera, Cambridge.
