A Chuck Berry portrait commissioned by his family and friends for his 84 birthday which they presented during his birthday gig.


I undertook the portrait in acrylic from a photo supplied by his family.  It was all done without his knowledge until the night.

Since that time many portraits have been commissioned for Icons of stage and screen.

How it all came about and where we are today.

I was ten year of age and it was Christmas eve.  I had asked for a box of paints for my Christmas present and eagerly awaited it’s delivery to be placed on the foot of my bed.

Morning came and my mother popped her head around my bedroom door to call me down for breakfast.  To her horror and a shrill yell, she noted that I had painted the walls in my room in just about every subject and colour  you can imagine.

It would be many years before I became a full-time artist, after first qualifying in electronics and later architectural design.  Today I have well over three thousand works in private homes and offices worldwide and the list grows daily.
