I’ve been an actor all my life (you may remember me from the Full Monty as Barry and more recently as Holiday Grainger’s dad in the new J.K Rowling TV series, Strike).

Here’s my acting website:

But I also love art; it’s like acting on canvas… only I get to be the writer, director and lead actor.

So when my son went to university in 2016 I started a part time BA (Hons) Painting degree with the University for the Creative Arts/Open College of the Arts.

People are starting to ask if I will sell them my paintings and I am also getting a lot of encouragement from my university tutor.

My plan is to stop supply teaching, which I did to bring up my son but can only do for a few more years before retirement age in four years time, and work as a painter and an actor into my 80's.
