When he was young he often painted water colours, but when he became an architect there was a pause until the 1970s. He went to Sherbourne school and studied architecture at Cambridge University and at the Architectural Association, and he worked in both Latin America and West Africa, but mainly in London.

He took to painting again after les Châtaigniers in the Morvan was purchased as a holiday home.
It was the inspiration of the trees and landscape there which enabled him to develop his watercolour technique.

After his architectural retirement in 1993 he settled at les Châtaigniers, and a few years later had developed a passionate interest in the world of the megaliths, which also began to show in his paintings and pen and ink drawings. For a while most of his holidays with his wife were directed towards megalithic sites.
