Career History  

Currently I am represented by the Jonathan Cooper Park Walk Gallery in London and the Lilford Gallery in Canterbury. I have exhibited in the London Art Fair 2015 and the 20/21 British Art Fair.
From 1996 to 2007 I was represented by Thompson’s Gallery, originally in Mayfair and now situated in Marylebone, London. During that time they sold more than 300 of my paintings. As a result my paintings and drawings feature in numerous national and international private and public collections. Also my paintings have been successfully exhibited with both Sotheby’s and Christies.
In 1999 I had a successful 2 man exhibition at Thompson’s Gallery and followed up in 2004 with a successful solo show at the same gallery.
Following a visit to my studio in 2003 by US Gallery Directors, Bill Harkins and Marlana Keynes of Hammond Harkins Galleries I began exhibiting with their galleries in Columbus, Ohio and Martha’s Vineyard, USA.
In 2003, 2006, 2009 and 2014 my work was chosen to hang in the National Portrait Gallery, London.
My work has featured in several publications including 500 Portraits: The National Portrait gallery, London, The Artist, Masterclass feature in 2007 and 2014; Homes and Gardens; Living South and The Hill, over thirty exhibition catalogues and numerous book covers
