His artistic journey includes a significant milestone with his first solo exhibition at Kidderminster Art Gallery in 1979, marking the commencement of his prolific career.

Throughout the years, he has actively participated in various solo and group exhibitions, contributing to the vibrant art scene. In 2000, he achieved recognition by winning a Lisa Ullam Travelling scholarship award, dedicating his skills to drawing dancers.
