Painter, ceramicist and sculptor. Studied under George Sweet (1909-1997) at the West of England College of Art, 1948-52, and under William Coldstream (1908-1987) at the Slade School of Art, 1953-54. In 1954 he won a scholarship to Paris attending the École des Beaux Arts. He taught at Falmouth School of Art, 1958-81, where he quickly became Head of Painting and in 1977 he undertook a fellowship at Gregynog Hall. He is a member of the Royal West of England Academy and is represented by Browse and Darby in London. In 2001 a retrospective exhibition of his work was held at both Plymouth Museum and Art Gallery and Falmouth Art Gallery.
