He was born in Manchester of Italian and Ukranian parents and still lives and works in the area.
After several years of formal studies in Art and Design he extended his skills by having further tuition in Natural History and Scientific Illustration. This has given him an exacting eye for detail and accuracy.
He now prefers to work in oils as this allows him to apply the techniques of paint layering and the subtle building of glazes to create a style that breathes life and reality into his finished paintings.
