For as long as I can remember I’ve been making art one way or another.
In the early years I was inspired by my mother’s ink drawings of people and I considered her to be very good. Something she wouldn’t admit to.
I enjoyed being a member of the Lambley Art Society sharing artistic ideas, exhibiting and selling my work. It was this very group who inspired me to study as a mature student in Art & Design and then later went on to study for a degree in Photography.
After my studies, I set up a photography business in Nottingham city centre and spent many years enjoying my career as a successful commercial and wedding photographer.
Because of ill health in recent years I have been unable to continue my full time career and so I took up my brushes, pencils and paints and threw myself into creating mixed media paintings while capturing beautiful and unusual scenes with my camera.
Working from my small studio at home I feel very content. I spend my time painting and creating Art photography, tutor in photography and mixed media painting.
My art is centred around rich and vibrant colours, from memories, locations, nature, animals, seasons and stories which interest me.
I hope you enjoy my work.
