Stoke on Trent, United Kingdom
I am a figurative artist working and living in Cheshire, England. I work in charcoal & oils, painting and drawing my favourite subjects: cricket and wildlife. Having taken up drawing over 15 years ago I now enjoy working as a full time artist from my home studio. I have exhibited with the Society of Graphic Fine Art for the past two years and my artwork has been featured in both The Leisure Painter Magazine and The Artist & Illustrator Magazine.
Being a cricket fan I particularly enjoy representing moments in games, capturing the twisted body movements of cricketers and the unnatural positions they get themselves into - figure drawing in a modern context. Charcoal does this beautifully, it's a very expressive medium, allowing me to represent my subjects with strong, bold strokes as well as close sensitive details.
Birds and wildlife have always been close to my heart, I enjoy being outside, exploring, photographing, collecting natural studies and chatting away into my Instagram Stories.
In my current work I am exploring ways to be increasingly expressive, inviting the viewer to weave their own stories into the pieces.
