I studied science at the University of Staffordshire, but became more interested in art. Eventually I studied landscape architecture at the University of Gloucestershire, an art based design course. However, I found I couldn’t get on with the less creative professional environment and started painting. Painting seems to be the best medium to express myself. My work is abstract, colourist and often textural, but beyond that is perhaps difficult to describe. Even more difficult is explaining it or why I paint this way, but I am passionate about it, and feel a burning desire to do so.
