British painter, sculptor, designer, illustrator, and teacher, born in London. His highly varied artistic training began with two years in an architect's office, continued at the *Royal Academy and the Westminster School of Art, and was rounded off with stays in Paris and Italy. He gained some of his sculptural expertise by sharing a studio for a while with Sir George *Frampton.
