Elected an Associate Member of the RCA in 2023

"Born in 1956, raised in Cheshire, I’ve no formal training but have drawn, painted and made things all my life, learning by practice and the example of others. From 1977 I designed record sleeves, posters and T shirts in London. Whilst making paintings and sculptures to use in the work I realised this was what I really wanted to do.

I moved to Montgomeryshire in 1990 with my wife Helen. My painting “Jack Tŷ Nant” won the open exhibition at MOMA Cymru. “Jack a Morley, Tŷ Nant” was visitors’ choice at the BP Portrait Awards (NPG, London). People wrote to me, moved by my paintings - an encouragement and a kind of validation. I received my first commissions. This is how I came to portraiture.

We live in a small, rural community in an area of quiet beauty. Our children were born and raised here. I feel this place is a part of me and I a part of it. We have made a life here and I have found the space and encouragement to be an artist."
