A Little About The Artist...

The artist's name needs little introduction to the crew of air bases in Western Europe and the United States, for whom his characteristic aviation artwork has been a familiar presence and inspiration for many years. His original training in Britain was in biochemistry, and it was only after years of service in the British Health Service that he decided to divert to a career in painting, in particular of his childhood love, aircraft. He developed his own painting style, combining technical accuracy and realism with imagination, colour and atmosphere to produce the kind of work which does justice to these marvelous machines and the men and women who operate and fly them.

He is a Fellow of the Guild of Aviation Artists in the UK, where he has won numerous awards over the years, as well as a member the American Society of Aviation Artists and the Canadian Association of Aviation Artists. He continues to work independently, preferring instead to preserve his freedom to work from source i.e. directly with the aircrew who are the inspiration behind so many of his works. Aside from the hundreds of paintings he has achieved over the years which hang in collections all over the world, he has also published hundreds of editions of both digital and lithographic prints. Apart from aviation, his artistic interests range widely from motoring and marine art to portraiture, animal life and landscapes. He lives in the ancient city of St Albans in Hertfordshire with his family.
