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. I obtained further training from St Martins College London and West Dean College, Chichester.
Since then my work has met with critical acclaim and is collected both locally and abroad. I am featured in the notable “Who’s Who in Art” (Movern Press), am an elected member of the prestigious Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, as well as the Manchester Academy of Fine Art. My work has appeared on the cover of various magazines and catalogues and is regularly selected for the Royal Institute of Oil Painters annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London. The spectacular and often wild landscapes of Cheshire and North Wales are a vital influence for my work and so I established my home and studio near Chester.
