Settling back in the United Kingdom he embarked on a twenty-four year career in art teaching which took him to Cornwall in 1980. Now, devoting his working energies to painting since 1999, he operates from his studio near Lands End.

His approach to painting is based, he feels, on the coming together of a sensuous enjoyment of colour that stems from those childhood memories of Africa combined with a sense of design that was confirmed by the experience of Italy. His recent paintings are often inspired by Cornwall's landscape and culture and he feels that it is the over-arching quality of maritime light to be found in this far western peninsula of the United Kingdom that has enabled him to bring together the two aspects of colour and design into a unified and celebratory style.
