I’m an artist, I grew up watching my dad and uncle who were traditional painters. My mum and dad also owned a few fine art and framing shops. I started drawing and painting from a young age. I didn’t really do any painting from when I got my first pro rugby contract at 18. Played in the premiership for over ten years in England. Injuries hampered me quite a lot and when playing in London and having retired once already due to injury and with the support and advice of my wife, I picked up a brush again. I’m now living in the south of France with my family and painting full time.
