A Welsh-Canadian artist living in BC, I was born in Wales UK. As a teenager I studied for four years at Cardiff College of Art and then West of England College of Art, graduating in 1969. The first year at art school, under the direction of abstract artists Tom Hudson and Mike Tysack, I received a technical grounding in the practical skills of colour application, gesture, line and tone. This experience was fundamental in my development as a painter.

In 2003 I made the choice to become a full time, professional artist. Currently I have a Studio at Xchanges Gallery & Studios in Victoria B.C. and paint there on a daily basis. My newest exhibit of paintings ‘Energetic Universe’ opened at Martin Batchelor Gallery in Victoria, February 2015. I teach Expressive Acrylic Painting at three venues in the city, and facilitate Life Drawing sessions at Xchanges Gallery & Studios.
