I trained in commercial art for three years at the Kingston School of Art before working as an illustrator and lettering artist in various London advertising agencies and studios.
i was elected an Associate member of the Royal Miniature Society in 2000, becoming a full member in 2004. I am also a member of the Hilliard Society and both The Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers Society in Washington and the Miniature Art Society of Florida in the USA.
