I developed a deep appreciation of nature during a childhood spent walking and enjoying the wildness of the African landscape. Completing my schooling with awards in Art, I studied Fine Art at the University of Wales, graduating with a first class Honours degree in 2007. Whilst studying, I curated exhibitions and showed my work at local galleries and abroad. The spectacular and often wild landscapes of Cheshire and North Wales were a vital influence to my work and so I established my home and studio near Chester. During this time I obtained further training from St Martins College London and West Dean College, Chichester.
Since then my work has met with critical acclaim and sells locally and internationally. My work has appeared on the cover of RISK magazine and published in ‘101 Abstract and Non-Figurative Artworks’(Jan2015). I was selected as an associate member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and my work is regularly selected for the prestigious Royal Institute of Oil Painters annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London. In recognition of my growing status my name was added to the notable “Who’s Who in Art’(Movern Press). Recently I was admitted as a member into the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts.
