He is currently a part time tutor with WEA Cymru while increasingly concentrating on his own work as an artist. Collections of his work include a painting in the Carmarthenshire County collection in Carmarthen.
His current work ranges from representational/near photo realist through to abstract process paintings. The representational work often uses every day subject matter like urban landscape, townscape and traditional figurative compositions.
The abstract works have no direct connections to realism and are produced with a strong element of process and colour for it's own sake.
