I was born in 1968 and have lived in London since 1986. After obtaining an A-level, Diploma and Higher National Diploma (HND) in art and design, I worked for a while as a graphic designer. I have been a professional artist since 1999.
I am influenced by the elements;cloud formations, weather conditions and natural plant and land forms. I’m stimulated to interpret these forms by capturing light, structure or simple patterns – an expressive form, an impression.
Alongside painting, I have a great passion for travelling. From my extensive travels I try and create a visual atmospheric painting of the places I have visited.
I have been commissioned by restaurant owners and property developers, my works are in private collections worldwide and I have exhibited paintings in many London galleries and open competitions. I was accepted as a member of the United Artists Association at the end of 2007.
I will attempt to get into the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition again this year. And I am involved in this years “Untitled Gallery” exhibition which will be held at Chelsea town Hall in May 2009.
