My earliest influence

was my grandfather, William Paddock, but I knew him only from his paintings and drawings some of which are featured on this site.

I had shown an aptitude for art at school so went on to train as a graphic designer at The London College of Printing, graduating in 1967. A few years later some friends and I set up our own design consultancy, which continued in various configurations for the next thirty years.

By 2003 I was on the verge of retirement and thinking I should revive my own rusty talent for art, so I enrolled in life-painting class at The Working Men’s College in Camden. The renewed enjoyment I found in painting, especially people, eventually led to the idea for my Painting London Underground project, which obsessed me from 2009-2013. Since then I have continued to paint portraits, whilst waiting for the next big idea to arrive!
