I have worked as an artist, an art director for a Polydor records, a freelance graphic designer, a scenic painter for films and television and as a mural painter. I briefly managed a band and co-directed and co-produced some promotional music videos.

I have a family tradition of painting that goes back two generations.My grandfather, Robert Thomas Mumford, exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy of Arts, and my father, Geoffrey Robert Mumford, exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery.

I like to paint both in oils and watercolours. I have had some shows in London and I exhibit regularly in Hertfordshire.
