Artist Declaration

After gaining a degree in Art History and English Literature at Leeds University (where I was taught be Maurice de Sausmarez and Quentin Bell and encouraged to paint by Nibs Dallwood), I was appointed assistant to the Professor and first year Art History Tutor in the Department of Fine Art, Kings College, University of Durham. In 1964 I was appointed Lecturer in Painting in the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. While at Newcastle I taught alongside Kenneth Rowntree, Victor Pasmore, Richard Hamilton, Eric Dobson,Ian Stephenson, Derwent Wise and Roger Palmer. Fellows in residence included Robert Medley, Joe Tilson and Terry Frost. Among the students I taught were Sean Scully, Stephen Buckley, Richard Kidd, Alan Turnbull and, nothing much to do with painting, Bryan Ferry.

In 1977 I was appointed Senior Lecturer in Painting at Wimbledon School of Art initially with Colin Cina and subsequently with Bernard Cohen and David Whitaker. While at Wimbledon I worked closely with a number of part-time tutors including Prunella Clough, Maggi Hambling, Trevor Sutton, Roger Ackling, Michael Porter, Patrick Jones, Trevor Felcey, Joe Volley and David Hepher.

In 1989 I took early retirement from Wimbledon and since then I have worked full time painting, first in a studio in Sussex  then in Devon and now in Lot et Garonne, France.
