Born and currently based in Sheffield, I am a full-time professional artist.
After completing an art and design 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, helping transform a riverside warehouse into studios and a gallery and participating in exchange group shows with Japan, USA, Holland and the UK.
I moved to Sheffield in 2000, exhibiting regularly in the area at the South Yorkshire Open, Great Sheffield Art Show, Art in the Gardens, Open Up and numerous other art shows winning several awards.
I paint contemporary landscape, cityscape, seascape, woodland and floral paintings inspired by vivid colours, dramatic light, storm skies, sunrises, sunsets and texture.
My paintings sell throughout the UK and worldwide and are in many private and public collections including Museums Sheffield, JD Weatherspoon and the NHS.
