You Put the Cod in My Head, Oil on canvas, 46 x 61 x 1.5 cm, 2021

I'm a TV/film actor and 2nd year BA (Hons) Painting student on my final level 2 unit with the University for the Creative Arts - Open College of the Arts, UCA's online college.


I hope to complete Level 2 in September 2021 and graduate in 2023.


Painting for me is acting on canvas, you do lots of prep and then turn yourself off and live in the moment. The colours and shapes are your set, new marks your dialogue.


Like acting painting is all about listening.


In the 1970's I trained at the Central school of Speech and Drama and have worked extensively in UK TV and film. You might have seen me as Barry in the The Full Monty and I recently played Michael Ellacott in the TV series Strike, starring Holliday Grainger and Tom Burke.  IMDB page , Spotlight, showreeland acting website.
