Started my career in engineering but changed to follow my passion and attended a summer fine art foundation course at Maidstone Art College in 90s to set myself up for a career change to art and design. Within the same year, I applied for a Design Information & Technical Illustration course at Bournemouth & Poole Art College, which I was accepted for and studied for 4 years gaining an HND Distinction pass.

My work covers the last 15 years of artwork and ideas which has given an eclectic mix of painting. The inspiration for me starting up once again came about from recent commissions which have spurred me on to start up my paining, using my favourite mediums of oils, pastels, water colour and pencils not forgetting airbrush acrylic and gold leaf. 

At the moment I am working on a new collection on waterfalls, streams and reflections which the idea has come from walking in the French Alps.
