My artistic journey began around the age of seven, and after leaving secondary school I studied Art and Design at Wigan College. This is where I learned the different disciplines of the subject including; fine art, life drawing, graphic design, 3D, textiles and photography. I furthered my education when I undertook a degree in Product Design at Salford University.
I take my inspiration from many sources, the most important to me are the Fauvist/ Impressionist movements. World renowned artists including; Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Henri Matisse and Post-Impressionist Vincent van Gogh are amongst some of my favourites. I also greatly admire the work of John Singer Sargent and contemporary artist Jack Vettriano.
My typical choice of medium is oil paint, applied onto stretched canvas or board. It’s versatile and allows me to blend colours comfortably and effectively, whilst building up layers of texture.
My work is fuelled by the use of imaginative ideas and dynamic colour studies. My artwork takes me on a limitless journey, as I am constantly developing new ideas and techniques to utilize in my work.
My art has been exhibited for sale in galleries and I've sold many pieces, both within the UK and worldwide.
