About Me

I take inspiration from the environment around me, looking at things from a different viewpoint. When I see something that catches my eye, be it the subject, the light, colour, texture or composition, I aim to capture this and hope it resonates with the viewer.

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.
