After  graduating from Winchester School of Art, a strong feeling for Russian culture lead him to St Petersburgs Repin Academy, where he continued post graduate study. His work emphasises links with 19th century culture, and  20th century conflicts. He feels that the human figure remains the ultimate means of artistic expression, communicating in a direct unequivocal manner humanities eternal struggle.

The pathos of conflict, lies central to his oeuvre.  Conversely the dramatic and very feminine art of Ballet provides the chance to portray ethereal movement and grace . the dancers movements appear to echo down the ages back to the Ancient Greeks. His inspiration is often drawn from the music of Beethoven, Bruckner and Wagner. Their work articulates mankind’s yearning for a humanised society based on traditional values in harmony with nature.
