I am an artist and second year university student studying for my BA (Hons) Painting with the Open College of the Arts, the distance learning arm of the University for the Creative Arts who validate my degree. 

I have always loved nature and would like to share the beauty that I see around me.

My influences are Matisse, David Hockney, the Nabis, Matthew Wong, Alex Katz and Richard Diebenkorn.

I am also a successful film and TV actor having trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama and worked on numerous films and TV series.


I played Barry in The Full Monty and feature as Michael Ellacott (Robin's dad, the female lead played by Holliday Grainger) in the J.K.Rowling TV series Strike.  My next appearance is in the first episode of Lethal White at Robin's wedding. This screens on BBC1 in the UK, and HBO in the USA, in September 2020.


There are more details over on my IMDB page , showreel, and acting website.
