The artist was born in Wales and studied in Cardiff, Gloucester and London before returning to live in Bridgend. His paintings deal with memory, emotion and experience, rather than specific events. This subject began with a darker painting of a single half-length male figure, with the underlying theme of leaving one's past behind. In contrast to this 'serious, even somewhat pompous idea', the artist views Running away with the Hairdresser as 'a momentary slip into fecklessness... a mature scepticism towards youth's arrogance'.
