Background During the late sixties and early seventies he painted English landscape in oils, watercolour and acrylics. He moved from England to New Zealand in 1984 and lives with his family in a pole house situated in 12 acres of native bush. He now paints mainly New Zealand bush in watercolour and finds the light and colours of New Zealad landscape a challenge. After a twenty six year break, he returned to painting in 1998 and exhibited paintings in The New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts and Archibald's Upstairs Gallery in 1999. In 2000 he exhibited paintings with The New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts, Ponder's Rona Gallery and The Wellington Society of Watercolour Artists at the St James Theatre and Wade House. This year started with a solo exhibition in the Michael Fowler Centre by invitation of the Wellington City Council. Followed by paintings in the Academy of Fine Arts and Wade House with Watercolour New Zealand. He serves as a committee of Watercolour New Zealand and is heavily involved in community arts. His paintings are included in collections in UK, Canada and New Zealand.
