Statement

I am a self taught artist.
Born in 1957 in Birkenhaed, Merseyside, one of 10 children, I left school at 15 years old to join the Merchant Navy where I worked for 10 years as an Able Seaman after which I worked welding.
In 1999 I had multiple major surgery on my lower back and neck, leaving me 70% disabled, whilst in convelecents I started drawing again after not drawing anything since leaving school.
Over the last 6 years I have been drawing in aid of different charities giving half of the profit made from my drawing to them:
The Children with Cancer Charity
The Bath Rugby Foundation
The Harlequins Rugby Foundation
The Steve Prescott Foundation
The Injured Jockeys Fund
To name a few.
