I was born and grew up in the city of Salisbury and being surrounded by countryside and medieval architecture, my love of rural and urban spaces started from a young age. Art and drawing had always been very interesting for me and allowed me express the way I felt about the world around me and these beautiful scenes I saw every day.
In my late teens I began painting and discovered watercolour, and through its unforgiving nature allowed me to forge a love, respect and passion for the medium and its difficulties early on. I have worked in all mediums but found that watercolour was the most expressive for me and so the 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 be an artist and to share my passion for painting and drawing with the wider audience. Later that year I relocated to Devon where I still live and work today.
I continue to create new work and collections of various subjects and locations from my studio, with a view of exhibiting and sharing the work that I produce. Through my paintings and drawings I hope to evoke real emotion, but most of all to let the viewer enjoy the art as much as I enjoy making it.
