I completed a fine art HND at Sheffield college as a mature student, where I won a competition to create a sculpture piece for Moorfoot foyer. I went on to develop my clay figurative sculpture and then moved to painting. I have been developing my technique and style and took part in Open up as part of a group in Hanging water studio in 2018. Since then I have been developing my still life awareness and starting to experiment with the extension of line in man created environments leading to partial abstraction (inspired by Lyonel Feininger). Alongside this work I have used my stills for climate awareness raising through banner painting and other creativity.
