Born in London April 23, 1924. His first interest was airplanes and he became a member of the Society of Aviation Artists in 1952. He was largely self-taught but did, for a time, study at the Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts and the St. Martin's School of Fine Arts .

By the end of the Second World War, he was a leading journalist and illustrator of aircraft subjects. In the 1960's his interest widened to the subject of historic sail. His commitment to marine paintings of this type grew as his aircraft interests waned, and since he held his first one-man show in 1973, he has made Marine Art a full time profession. His well researched and beautifully crafted paintings of historical maritime subjects can be seen in many public and private collections throughout America and England.

He was elected a full member of the Royal Society of Marine Artists in 1977, his first year of exhibition.
