Artist statement

I have been drawing and painting for as long as i can remember, and creating artwork has always been a driving force and passion in my life. My style has developed through many years of experience working in professional fine art studios – designing and producing artwork for hotels, restaurants, commercial spaces, public areas and private estates worldwide. I’m now an independent freelance artist, and enjoy spending some of my time teaching art classes, running painting workshops and doing painting demonstrations throughout the UK & Europe.

Being outside in nature is a huge source of inspiration for me, and you can frequently find me high up in the mountains or perched on rocks by the sea painting oil sketches in preparation for my larger works.
