Biography & Galleries

r

I was born in 1973 in Bristol in the United Kingdom.

In 1994 I went to study under the direction of Master Patrick Betaudier in Monflanquin in France at the Atelier Neo Medici. I was taught a modern version of the Renaissance technique known as the Technique Mixed. This technique; which combines detailed under painting with transparent oil glazes, dates back to the time of the 15th century Flemish master Jan van Eyck. Over the years I have modified the technique I was taught to enhance my paintings. I am in the process of writing a book on technique.

I currently exhibit my paintings at Thompsons Gallery, London, The Plus One Gallery, London and Kendalls Fine Art in Cowes. I have 2 paintings that will be in The Mall Galleries RYMA exhibition in October.

Recently I have been working on commissions for private individuals and special commissions for Superyacht and jet interiors.

I am married with 3 children, and live and work in  Aix en Provence in the south of France.
