In his own words:

"I think my love of the sea began as a boy when I spent many hours at the harbourside watching all types of shipping coming and going in and out of Mounts Bay. I decided then that I wanted to go to sea at some time in the future. I volunteered to join the Royal Navy during the second world war, but owing to circumstances found myself serving with the Paras in the far east for five years.

Having returned to Civvy Street in 1947 I found that I couldn't settle down, so I joined the Merchant Navy fulfilling my boyhood dreams tramping around the world on oil tankers. Over a period of fifteen years or so I sailed the seven seas and saw many countries, the sea gradually seeped into my blood and I realise now that it was providing me with the material I would need for future paintings.

I finally gave up going to sea in the 1960's and managed to quell my wanderlust by painting my sea memories on canvas. I eventually painted Landscapes as well as Maritime scenes and taught art to local students for many years."
