I'm a Nottinghamshire born artist graduating with a first class B.A. Honours degree in Fine Art, B.A. Art History, Master of Education, and a Further Education Teaching Certificate. I've also studied Classical Realist Painting with the Scottsdale Artists School, Arizona, and became an elected member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists.
I like capturing body language to create imaginative narratives that evoke feeling, curiosity, and invite reinterpretation. I have a passion for craftsmanship and like studying Victorian painters, especially, John Waterhouse, James Guthrie, and Stanhope Forbes, and the techniques of later artists such as William Coldstream and Euan Uglow.
Most of my work is inspired from seeing Breton dancers perform at festivals in Brittany.
