Official Artist for the 2019 National Cherry Blossom Festival and is the recipient of numerous national and international awards. While his inspiration is broadly drawn from the natural world, it is the vivid use of color that truly
defines his paintings. He has exhibited widely throughout the world, especially in the US, China, Europe and his native London. In 2007 he formed a working relationship with boxing legend Muhammad Ali who selected him to chronicle his career through a series of portraits that included joint portraits of both the champ and President Obama. The British-born artist is now a US citizen and resides in California.
