was born in 1958. Although he first exhibited in London at the Chelsea Arts Society at the age of 15 whilst still at Eton, it took him another 14 years to become a full-time painter.
After leaving school he travelled the Hippy Trail to India, ran out of money, joined the Coldstream Guards and served as an officer in Northern Ireland, West Africa and Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) during the Civil War as an Aide-de-Camp to C-in-C British Army of the Rhine. During this time he painted whenever possible, and studied part-time at Chelsea School of Art and Heatherley's.
Working first in advertising and then as an art dealer, he finally submitted to the need to paint full-time in 1989.
Since then, he has held 14 One Man Shows (including 8 with Messum's in Cork St and recently with Wally Findlay International in New York and Palm Beach), has painted portraits of leading figures including the late Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Runcie and the countertenor Michael Chance in the role of Orpheus at the ENO. He has also been an Official War Artist in Bosnia, has written regularly for The Artist magazine, and lectures in London and at his summer school on Colour and Twentieth Century Painting.
