From 1994 until its 2014 closure he was solely represented by Francis Kyle Gallery Maddox Street London.

He participated first in that gallery’s “Jazz” exhibition, travelling through the Mississippi Delta to New Orleans painting in watercolour the locations, rural and urban that inspired the music he still loves.

Subsequently, he was a participant in the gallery’s exhibition devoted to woodland: “Per una selva oscura – artists take to the forest” (1995).

From 1995 onwards he has worked almost exclusively in oils, contributing to many of the gallery’s theme exhibitions, including:

  • “Everyone Sang: a view of Siegfried Sassoon and his world”(2006)
