About the Artist

I'll keep this short, as I have read some of these myself and, well .....

Born in Bristol. Trainee Radiographer 1968 on. Got some qualifications. Own Radiography business giving service to industry in Aerospace, Nuclear, Defence, and most other engineering fields.

Retired from industrial work to concentrate on creating images that I might be pleased to have around me. Some success in that, and others too have become collectors of my X-ray work. Set up facilities at The Lost Gardens of Heligan, and really enjoyed my years there, having the freedom to wander around with a pair of snips to 'plunder' the occasional treasure.

Opened my first X-ray Gallery in St Austell town centre.

Now based at the Barrow Centre in the grounds of Mount Edgcumbe Country Park, on the Rame Peninsula, I am priveleged to work in lovely surroundings, and now inhabit the old Carriage Horse Stable, which is now my working studio/gallery.

Been 'on the telly'. My X-ray pictures have been displayed on Springwatch, Autumnwatch, and others. Won a Wellcome Image Award. Featured in a US conservation journal, as well as local and National Press, and magazines such as Cornwall Today.

There. That's it done!
