I paint oil on canvas, and was inspired by the artists at the first university I went to – North Staffordshire Polytechnic. I was studying science there at the time, but then realised I wanted to be an artist. Later I completed a degree in Landscape Architecture which appeared to combine a lot of my interests, but I then realised I still wanted to be an artist. Professionally, I have been involved in various forms of social work throughout my life, but realise I still want to be an artist. I am managing to do this part time at least now. My work could be described as abstract, expressive and colourist, but probably bares no resemblance to other works of this genre.
