I was born in the city of Salisbury in Wiltshire, and through my childhood I enjoyed every aspect of art. In my teens I began to show an interest in painting and began teaching myself the skills and techniques needed to produce them. Through the early years of success and failure, it allowed me over time to produce the portfolio I have today. I have worked in all mediums, but found early on that watercolours were the most expressive medium for me, and so majority of my work is centered around it. ? In 2003 I held my first solo exhibition titled ' The Inspirational world ' in the Portico Gallery in Salisbury. This was a crucial stepping stone for me and confirmed my desire to share my passion for painting and drawing with the wider audience. Later that year I relocated to Torquay, where I still live and work today. I have continued to exhibit and have produced several commissioned pieces for both private and business clients. I am planning future exhibitions and am constantly working on new collections. I also enjoy commissioned work and the exciting and varied challenges they bring in their own right. By sharing my art, I hope to evoke real emotion for the audience and offer a real sense of passion through the work I produce. Above all to let others enjoy art as much as I enjoy making it. I hope you enjoy your visit.
