He was brought up in Abertillery, Monmouthshire and attended Newport School of Art from 1953 to 1957 and the Royal College of Art from 1959 to 1962. After a year painting in Portugal on a travelling scholarship he returned to live in Abertillery and teach at Newport School of Art. He became a member of 56 Group Wales and exhibited extensively.
