Biography

All art on display here is for sale just message me to see if it is still available, You can also commission me for 'pretty much' anything. (see list below, I do like Tunnock wafers at the moment) I studied art at school and then went to Leek Art School, where I met some fabulous people who taught me a lot, and the staff were pretty good too. I then took a degree in art at Manchester until 1987. Then I stopped altogether and switched direction to music, and then teaching design, both of which I have done for the last 20 plus years. In 2004 I took life classes for a couple of terms, where I developed a taste for working rapidly, and enjoying making marks. Then another break until I started to draw again a couple of years ago on holidays aiming to fill a sketchbook each holiday. I really thank you for all the comments you make about the work I post they are truly appreciated. No matter how much self-belief you have, it greatly helps to have things affirmed by the appreciation of such a talented bunch of artists as yourselves. I currently have work on display in Leeks Foxlowe Arts Centre with an exhibition in the gallery that has now been cancelled twice due to the virus so maybe next year now. I also have work in galleries in the Staffordshire area. After over 20 years I am stopping teaching full time early this year and I am going to focus more on the things I want to do (painting, sculpture, stained glass, furniture design, making stuff, playing music and sitting down with a coffee and a biscuit).
