After graduating with distinction as an illustrator from Blackpool and Fylde College my career as an illustrator and graphic designer took me to The Netherlands then France where I lived for 23 years. Since returning to the UK in 2013, I have a whole new environment to re-explore and filter into my work.
As well as following an art education, I was heavily influenced by my father who was a successful transport artist, and I have been drawing and painting since a young age. I have worked mainly in watercolour and gouache, but have recently begun exploring new techniques using oils and acrylic.
I enjoy painting wildlife and architectural details but feel that my new surroundings in Yorkshire and Northumberland will start to have an impact as I adapt to a different light.
