"Deep down I always knew what I wanted to do for a living and in my school years I remember my father teaching me some basic elements of drawing and I dreamed of one day becoming an artist.
Being only really interested in art I left school and studied Graphic Design, after which I started work at a local art gallery as a picture framer.
I continued to paint alongside my job, mainly developing techniques and ideas and in 2005 decided it was time to follow my dreams and dedicate myself to painting full time.
I always try to make my work feel atmospheric, and I like to pay particular attention to sky and cloud formations as I consider this element of my work to be extremely important to the mood of the finished painting, whether it be a dramatic sunset or a misty moonlit night.
In 2010 I attended my first solo exhibitions and feel really privileged that the work has been so well received by collectors. This gives me great encouragement to continue to develop my work in the future."
