I studied at Langley College, Berkshire, BTEC NAT Fine Art - Merit and BTEC FOUNDATION Fine Art - Distinction.
I then went on to complete my BA (HONS) at Southampton Institute in 1997 with a 2:2. Whilst in my second year I exhibited and studied at the Universitade de Belas Artes, Lisbon, Portugal (part of a European student exchange Jan - March 1996).
In the final year of my degree I exhibited and co-organised a successful alternative media exhibition at the Bargate Shopping Centre in Southampton (March 1997). I have also been involved in several in-house exhibitions at the Southampton Institute. (1994 -1997).
My day job is a graphic designer (for the past four years ) this helps me to fund my art work, materials and exhibitions. Through graphic design I have come to appreciate how to present an image to the public. I undertake my ark work intensively in my spare time.
