Background

I have always sketched, painted observed and always had a fascination with Art, painting mainly. Not being very academic my only logical path was to utilize my creative skills.

My journey started at College and then university where I studied Print Making, (not fine Art) although I only completed 2 years of that degree. I still work as a 3D Graphic illustrator for a Playground company which I have done for the past 15 years. While there I gained a Degree with honours in Landscape Architecture, and so became a Landscape Architect. I have since reduced my hours of work to concentrate more on the ‘ART’

 

The Art started about 4 years ago when I just out of the blue decided to give oil paints a go, and I was instantly hooked.​

Working between portraits and landscapes, I was an absolute beginner, I read, I listened and I watched as well as painting constantly, trying to learn how to use oil paints.
