Born and currently based in Sheffield, I am a professional award-winning contemporary artist.
After completing an Art Foundation Course in Rotherham, I studied at Hull College of Art, obtaining a BA Honours degree in Fine Art (Painting).
After College, I joined Hull Artists’ Association, transforming a riverside warehouse into studios and a gallery, staging group exhibitions in the UK, Japan, Holland and the USA.
I moved back to Sheffield in 2000, exhibiting at annual events such as Great Sheffield Art Show, Art in the Gardens, Open Up Sheffield and numerous Open Art Exhibitions, winning several awards.
I specialise in contemporary landscape, cityscape, seascape, woodland and floral paintings inspired by vivid colour, dramatic light, storm skies, sunrises, sunsets, atmosphere and texture.
My work sells throughout the UK and worldwide and is in many private and public collections including J D Weatherspoon and the NHS.
