Graham was owner and manager of a successful Coffee Estate in the Lower Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe.
Due to the political situation in that country, he and his wife Sue decided to leave that country and reside in the Cape Province of South Africa, making painting his full time occupation.
He paints from his home based studio and has built up a large client base over the past four years.
His works hang in both corporate boardrooms and private collections throughout the world.
The subject of his artworks is African wildlife, which he and Sue photograph extensively when spending extended trips to various game reserves in Southern Africa. These photographs are then used as his subjects in the composition of his artworks.
Graham is very particular about the preciseness and accuracy of the animals he paints, taking great time and care of their body proportions in order to making them appear as realistic as possible.
It has been said by many purchasers of his paintings that the elephants he paints are “the best painted elephants on the market" and that “you can stroke the fur on his cats."
Graham also paints sea-scapes and land-scapes which have been highly appraised by his studio visitors and purchasers.
