Living in the lee of Table Mountain gives me great inspiration, and although the raging fires seen in the past few years have been quite deadly, they are awe-inspiring. A different view of the cable car was a must to paint.
I was born in the North of England and came to South Africa 49 years ago and Cape Town has been my home since then. After studying and working at the West of England College of Art and Bristol University, I worked as a creative visualiser in a studio in Bristol. Whilst working in Europe I received commissions for interiors of large corporation offices and designed the exhibition stand at the Hanover International Fair. I have exhibited in Richmond, Western-Super-Mare and the Crain Calman Gallery in Knightsbridge. I also had work on show at the Barnes Gallery in London and in 1981 my work was exhibited in Moscow. Since coming to South Africa, I have done numerous portraits of some well know people.
