    My Story

    From an early age I was constantly drawing on anything I could find. I remember regularly getting into trouble in school for drawing on my books. I find it therapeutic...


    I couldn’t imagine my life if I wasn’t drawing and painting, and now I make my living from it. How lucky am I? I have been painting full time for over 25 years. I am largely self taught, which has helped me to develop my individual style. I work mainly with a mixed media technique, using fine nibbed dip pens with indian ink and watercolour. I love to paint cityscapes and street scenes, the more detailed the better. The fine pen work provides a beautiful architectural feel to my paintings, combined with warm washes of vibrant colour. I also enjoy painting more serene seascapes, which brings a more traditional aspect to my work.


    I incorporate the same meticulous attention to detail in my paintings to all aspects of my work, from framing, presentation, branding to in store displays. I spend as much time as I possibly can painting and creating new pieces, simply because it is something I love to do.
