Graham was born in 1946 and educated in Worksop where he still lives. Although he has not received any formal art training, he has been a serious painter for many years.
As well as interior and still life paintings his landscapes and marine subjects are found over a wide area of the country, using oils, water colour, body colour, and acrylics.
Graham has had work accepted at many open exhibitions including Buxton, Derby and Hull Art Galleries, and he exhibits at the South Yorkshire Gallery, Doncaster. He shows work regularly in London and his work has been accepted for the Royal Water Colour Society open exhibitions at the Bankside Gallery, and has exhibited with the Royal Institute of Painters in Water colour, and the New English Art Club at the Mall Galleries.
Among Graham's other interests are fell walking and rock climbing which is reflected in some of his landscape work.
