The Student Years

My mother was a painter who loved classical art, which somehow connected me to Burne-Jones, but at 17 oil painting, Impressionism and the Fauves happened simultaneously for me. Before that I had just been drawing. At the Slade much of my time was spent working from the life model. Studied Cézanne for thesis with Lawrence Gowing. Married Françoise in 1980. Last year of the Slade working from Françoise in her first pregnancy early in the morning before she went to work.
