His career developed from working for two paint

manufacturers in an advisory capacity, to becoming a

Contracts Manager for a large firm of painting contractors

on the Fylde coast. In 1980 Rob returned to full-time

studies in order to gain a teaching qualification, and, when

qualified, he was employed at Preston College as a full-

developed his own style of watercolour painting, and now

supports various charities from sales of his work.
