About the Book
This 160 page volume of my artwork, of which there are 128 full colour illustrations and 34 personal reference photographs, takes the reader on a journey through my life experiences during my teenage years, through my working life, until the time I crossed the Atlantic to work in the United States, in 1989.
The continuation of my autobiography, from 1990 to the present day, will be presented in a second volume to be published with new, and some older artworks, in the near future.
