I studied painting at Chelsea School of Art in London. My tutors included Ken Kiff and Patrick Symons. I graduated in 1977 with a degree in Fine Art. I have since worked as a Print Colourist, and from 1989 as an Animator and Clean up Artist on television series and feature films, including work on the animated sequences for "Miss Potter", the biographical film of Beatrix Potter, and many commercials. More recently I have concentrated on painting again, specializing in portraiture and illustrations for children.
