Born 1949, in Barnsley, Yorkshire, of English/Polish origin. After several years training as a painter, I have worked as a practicing artist for over 40 years.

In the early '80s, I was involved with the "Art in Hospitals Scheme" organized by Edna Read and supported by East Midlands Arts Council and had ten solo exhibitions as part of the scheme.  I have taken part in numerous group shows nationally and internationally, as well as over twenty solo exhibitions. In recent times I have strengthened my connection with Poland, having two major solo exhibitions as well as taking part in several residencies and group shows.

I am currently a resident artist at Crescent Arts in Scarborough, North Yorkshire.
