Born in Wimbledon in 1974, I currently live in Alton, Hampshire. I studied Illustration at University of Westminster (1993 - 1997) and was a commission-based artist for many years before embarking on my own artistic journey.

With a particular interest in people and places, I like to paint atmospheric scenes that allow narrative interpretation. I also enjoy painting subjects that evoke feelings such as nostalgia and joy. 

Working in acrylics, I build up layers of paint to add depth and interest. My process is rapid to begin with and I often leave some of the initial, loose marks visible whilst developing other areas. 

A strong composition and sophisticated use of colour are important to me. I have been told that my paintings turn an ordinary scene into something extraordinary and this continues to be my aim - to transport the viewer and allow them to see the world through my eyes.

Recent notable events include my artwork, 'Awnings', being shortlisted for the British Art Prize 2024 and exhibited at gallery@oxo, London.
