British painter, born in Edinburgh. His father's work with a shipping company made for a childhood in different locations: in 1962 the family moved to Trinidad and then in 1966 to Canada. He went to London in 1979 to study art, first at Wimbledon School of Art and then at *St Martin's School of Art. Then, after a further period of supporting himself as a dresser at English National Opera, he moved back to Canada, where he worked as a scene painter in the film industry.
