The meth­ods he em­ploys for his work are Ger­man im­pres­sion­ism and ba­sic colour the­ory. He also loves French ex­pres­sion­ism.

When he did a foun­da­tion in art at Uxbridge Col­lege the teacher asked if he was on acid as his “paint­ings were so colour­ful”.

He added: “We’re go­ing to cover the whole shop in pa­per prints of the paint­ings this time, not just one wall.”
