I was born in Dalston, North London, where I grew up and in my early teens moved to Essex.
As a young adult art was a constant in my life, and my interest has never waivered and I have had a lasting passion for drawing, painting and working with mixed media in my art.
I went to Art College in both Colchester and Wimbledon, which gave me a variety of skills to enhance my art projects.
I admire all painting styles and have been influenced by the fantasy work of Disney, and more recently the work of Hockney.
My work is quite traditional in style, however, I often blend other styles subtly into my art, I enjoy taking whatever medium I am working with and experiment to it’s full potential.
I also teach art offering painting and drawing in a variety of mediums and in addition collage and mixed media.
