He has sold over 400 paintings in this period. He was a member of the Norwich Twenty Group. . His paintings often depict the faded areas of Chelsea and Fulham as well as Brighton. He uses strong draughtsmanship and restrained colour to capture the atmosphere of particular locations. "I have always been interested in Urban landscape and seascape. This has been the subject matter of my work for most of my life. The buildings in question are painted as I see them, although this may sometimes produce architectural changes for the sake of the painting - although almost photographic in concept I try to base them on sound principle of abstract design. An important part of the paintings are the figures which are stylised and simplified to suit the painting in question" Brian Hagger's words
