Born and brought up in Yorkshire, he studied at Barnsley School of Art, followed by the Slade School of Fine Art, London, and became a freelance artist in 1957. His revolutionary use of vivid colour was first showcased in Brian Wildsmith's ABC published in 1962, for which he won the Kate Greenaway Medal. He received commendation again for Birds in 1967 and for The Owl and the Woodpecker in 1971. Much of his artwork is to be found at the Brian Wildsmith Museum of Art in Izukogen, south of Tokyo.

Lovely, unusual cards
||These cards were nice but not as good as the other pack.|
I'd prefer the cards to be smaller in size, and the paintings are not to my taste—rather childish to my perhaps unsophisticated eye. Sorry.
Envelopes flimsy and awkward to insert and seal—gum overlaps card inside!
