David trained as a graphic artist at The London School of Printing and Graphic Art before starting as a design artist working for among others the then acclaimed J Walter Thompson. Fairly soon in his career he realised that the restrictions of the commercial discipline (involved in such tasks as drawing weather maps for the BBC) did not meet his expectation and made a radical career change. He spent the last 40+ years in promoting creative teaching and learning strategies to educationalists. On his retirement, nearly three years ago as a Director of a renowned children's charity, finally he has been able to realise his ambition to become much more than a creative hobbyist.
David now works to develop multi-media painterly skills through his portraits and other works and has recently experimented with screen and mono-printing encompassing a range of styles from realism to abstraction.
