He entered St. Martin’s School of Art in 1956 where he studied under Anthony Caro, Ruskin Spear and Frederick Gore. On completing his course, he furthered his study of painting at the Royal Academy Schools.
After an extended period, painting abroad, he returned to London and in 1976 became involved in etching at Morley College.

His work has been exhibited in Japan, U.S.A., Australia and throughout Europe.
