Born within the sound of Bow Bells but lived in South Kensington before transferring to Brighton. After a short spell in Greece and Surrey moved to Cambridge. Despite a professional legal career I have always liked to paint and, over the past 10years, have experimented with stonecarving. My continuing love for Greece  led me to paint the lovely island of Hydra amongst other Greek images.   I have enjoyed working with acrylics due to the versatility of the medium, its fast drying properties and plasticity. More recently ,however, I have preferred the more engaging finished effect of oils, together with their more subtle appeal to the eye . My paintings are often a mix of the two. I have recently undertaken some stone carving in Carrara marble, alabaster and polyphant. One of my paintings is in the Cambridge University Institute of Astronomy Observatory and can be seen online at .
