Biography

Born in Bushey, Herts in 1954 I was brought up in Harrow, Middlesex and attended Harrow School of Art where I gained a BA (Hons) Fine Art I had some wonderful tuition from one particular tutor, Ken Howard OBE RA. My qualification earned me a place as apprentice illustrator in a London studio working on books and magazines often with incredibly short deadlines. After three years I decided that my true aspirations weren't being met and I found a way back into the fine art scene. Painting solidly alone and with various art groups I gained valuable experience. Two tutors stand out for me; Denis Syrett a former President of the ROI and Rod Hamer a brilliant but modest artist and excellent jazz trumpeter. My exhibiting was becoming more fruitful and moving from watercolour to oil, acrylic back to dry mediums I found I could develop my own styles which have become looser and more expressive. Success in my own work led naturally to teaching art to adults in all forms, writing for magazines, demonstrating and working as reviewer for art materials

It was a pleasure working with Maximus and I am very happy with the painting. The communication with Maximus was always very timely and friendly. The painting was more complex than I originally thought with putting different buildings and places together into one new scenery. Maximus did a great job and he finished the work well before the agreed finalisation time.
