When not painting I am a wilderness activist, mainly trying to protect our coastal environment. I hold a B.A. (Architecture) degree from Manchester University (UK).
I also farmed in New Brunswick and, earlier in life, was a leading scout for the army in the Malayan jungle.
My wife Elspeth and I have lived in West Vancouver for the past 30 years and have family members here on the West Coast.
My paintings were shown at the Federation Gallery on Granville Island, where I received second prize in the Canadian Artists’ Abstract Show. The Federation also gave me two Awards of Excellence for pastel paintings. My painting “Winter Sunrise” was included in the “Painting on the edge” international show.
My show “Migrations” was featured at the Silk Purse Gallery, West Vancouver in 2015. I have also taken part in several shows at the West Vancouver Ferry Building gallery.
My work is mostly semi-abstracts with landscape, building or life-form subjects.
