I studied art at St. Helens College of Art and at The University of Wales in Cardiff; I also have a Post Graduate teaching qualification from the University of Newport.
My art is a representation of life from my perspective, I have been painting and drawing from life, recording places, events and people wherever I go. I especially enjoy drawing musicians whilst they play. I will select my subject matter to suit my interest at the time. Be it skateboarders, rugby players or dancers enjoying their fearless commitment to their sport, providing me with great dynamics .
I prefer to work directly in front of my subject wherever practical making a direct response, but I do also work in my studio allowing my memory and imagination to kick in. Studio working for me also encourages a more painterly approach to my work.
My art studio is at home allowing me to fit my art with the rest of my family commitments. I regularly find inspiration to paint from my own garden and frequently include family members into my paintings.
I also teach drawing and painting, mostly to adults, specializing in portraiture and life-drawing.
