A Master Artist who grew up in London and attended the R.C.A.D. College of Art & Design. He received post-graduate degrees in Art Education and Educational Psychology at Birmingham University. He has taught extensively at the cutting edge of art education, integrating art and design technology. Formerly the “Curriculum Development Officer” for the Arts in Papua New Guinea, he lived there for 11 years before coming to Hawaii. He has taught at the University of Hawaii and the Honolulu Academy of Arts.
He currently paints full-time in his preferred medium of oils. His work has sold throughout America, Canada and Europe, principally through private sales. His underlying aim is to extract the “essence” of Hawaiian shapes and textures through his unique blend of brush strokes and colors – stressing the “uniqueness” of the special Hawaiian/Pacific ambient light.
