Born in Manchester, I studied Visual Art at Aberystwyth University and Painting at Wolverhampton University. My work has been shown in numerous solo and group shows in London, elsewhere in the UK, the USA and Johannesburg.

The work is representational and is mostly a slow and thoughtful process. All that I do is grounded in observation which I try to combine with ideas, symbols, narrative, conjecture… In my work I try to look again at the everyday, a world that is barely glimpsed and often overlooked.

I prefer there to be a story that is not fully explained. I like the idea that the viewer can complete the story.

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” – W.B. Yeats
