After obtaining a degree in mathematics, and teaching for a number of years, he then decided to devote himself to painting full-time. He is best known for his floral still life paintings, which evoke the work of nineteenth century still life artists, such as Henri Fantin-Latour, with their soft shadows and subtle lighting.

He is also a regular contributor to the annual exhibitions at the Royal Academy, London.
