Growing up in Devon in England, he enjoyed drawing passing ships.
He studied at London's Central School of Art. He worked for the Orient Line then Thorneycroft, where he helped design the royal yacht.
During the second world he worked for naval intelligence. He drew ships to help recognise them.
In the early 1960s he created superb line drawings of Atlantic ocean liners.
These were the crème de la creme of passenger ships. Shipping companies competed to create the most impressive and fast ocean liners.
Here are some of his lithographs of magnificent ocean liners for you to choose from. They are genuine vintage prints, made in 1961.
