I was born in London but now live in the beautiful county of Somerset not far from the mystical town of Glastonbury, home to so many legends, a truly inspiring area.
I am a self taught Artist and Photographer. I don't have any preferred medium but at the moment, I mainly paint in acrylic but also love the immediacy of pastels and their depth of colour. My paintings start with a thought which just seems to appear from nowhere, which I get excited about and then think about a lot (too long) before I begin painting. My photography (like my painting) is also purely inspirational, I just love seeing something unexpected that shouts out to me and capturing that 'moment in time' with my camera.
I enjoy making digital collages of my original art work and photographs and time seems to stand still whilst working on the computer. I love books and so words sometimes find their way into my paintings and photographs, every painting and photograph I create, I feel tells it's own story, my story and the viewers.
Over the years images, ideas and words constantly kept filling my head, I had no concept of what to do with them and for far too long I chose to ignore them. Finally, I am really excited as I have decided to allow them to live and breathe in my art.
