Born and currently based in Sheffield, I am a full-time professional artist.
After completing an art and design foundation in Rotherham, I obtained a BA Honours degree in Fine Art (Painting) at Hull College of Art.
After graduating, I joined Hull Artists Association, transforming a riverside warehouse into studios and a gallery and participating in numerous exchange exhibitions with art groups from Japan, Holland and the USA.
I moved back to Sheffield in 2000, exhibiting regularly in the area, notably the South Yorkshire Open, Great Sheffield Art Show, Art in the Gardens and Open Up, winning numerous awards.
I paint contemporary landscape, cityscape, woodland, sea and floral paintings featuring vivid colour, dramatic light. storm skies, sunset, sunrise and texture.
My paintings sell worldwide and are in many collections including Museums Sheffield, NHS, JD Weatherspoon and Yorkshire & Lincolnshire Arts.
