"I was trained as a "Fine Artist" and made large abstracts but I had a young family.
In the real world I became a jobbing illustrator for books and magazines and was asked to paint a minnow for an encyclopaedia of fishing.
I later progressed to painting all the fishes for "The Fisherman's Handbook and Advanced Guide" and whilst initially not owning a fishing rod, I became fascinated by all species of angler's quarry. My paintings became somewhat like cave art - they were animals from another world which I hoped to catch, perhaps even by magic."
