After running a successful graphic design company, I decided to fully immerse myself in art. I’ve been lucky enough to work alongside some amazing tutors who have selflessly shared invaluable knowledge and infectious enthusiasm for their subject.

I have always ‘looked’ but never truly observed but now I ‘see’ everything… a daily stream of inspiration and endless opportunities to take to my studio! I normally work quickly and intuitively to capture what originally excited me, often moving away from the figurative to the more subjective or abstract.

You can view a selection of my latest work here on this site, on Instagram and at selected exhibitions.
