Born in Greenwich, London in 1945 it is fitting that Roy paints London scenes. He has spent his life seeing the beautiful metropolitan skyline change and where else than from Greenwich can you see London change the most?
Roy's compositions focus on capturing the introduction of a new building to the horizon or highlighting how a building is lit, studying its effect on the skyline and its relationship with the Thames. Like many artists before him he enjoys painting the contrast of man's artificial impact on the earth with the natural reflections of the water and how light plays between them.
The magificent skies and changing moods are painted on a scale that mimics the expanse of a vista that we too often take for granted.
