He studied at Croydon School of Art, 1949-50 and at the Royal College of Art 1950-3. From 1964 he taught for many years at the Royal Academy, being appointed professor of perspective in 1984. From 1950 was a regular RA exhibitor, also showing at NEAC, Leicester Galleries and Roland, Browse & Delbanco. Solo shows at Trafford Gallery and New Grafton Gallery, 1974 onwards.
