    My early influence and training in art came from time spent in my father's studio growing up. He was the philosopher and classical painter Dr. Henry Campbell F.R.S.A.
Under his guidance I received a strict early training in the techniques of the Italian Renaissance painters using graphite,
charcoal and egg tempera.
In 1974 I attended Kent Institute of Art and Design to study for an art foundation course.
In 1977 I attended Kent Institute of Art and Design once again to study for a degree in Graphic Design and Illustration,
graduating in 1980.
From 1980 to 1981 I worked as an illustrator for the BBC commissioned to illustrate for the childrens TV programme Jackanory.
I also at the same time illustrated for educational and childrens book publishers.
In 1981 I accepted an art teaching post at Kings School, Rochester in Kent, later to become head of the art department where I stayed for twenty two years.
Since 2003 I moved to West Wales where I continue to teach two private art groups and work as a freelance painter and illustrator.
I currently live and work in the coastal village of Llangrannog, near Cardigan, in West Wales.
