Born on the Isle of Sheppey in 1973, a small island in Kent, South East England. Aged seven, I moved with my family inland. Deep into the heart of what is left of the Kent countryside.
I'm interested in the kinetic formations when light reflects and refracts on and within water. The work more often needs to be viewed from a distance to appreciate true perspective. The concept of zooming in on refractions (for example) and then exploring those forms. To remind yourself the origins (before abstraction) of the true image, it may be necessary to then pan back out.
Sketching and painting became my main interest from about the age of 19. Having completed a Diploma in Art and Design at college in Dover. I then moved to Somerset. Here I resided for five years in a beautiful Victorian manor house upon a hill overlooking City of Wells. I was able to learn to paint; having found the time and the space. Awarded by The Princes Trust (aged 25) I was able to fund further materials, frame/exhibit and then go on to sell the first painting. After 7 years of painting I began to develop the genre of work I continue with today. Since then I have completed a BA degree in Fine Art and sold over 25 paintings to date. After discovering I'm dyslexic; I am currently studying an MA in Fine Art. I continue to operate my business as Freelance Artist.
