I’m an artist living near Skipton North Yorkshire. 

I love developing a story in all my work, there is often an emotional connection to what I do and sometimes gentle humour too.  For my degree I installed 1000 tins of baked beans into the exhibition space and designed 33 different labels based on a bad hair day. It made some smiles.


Since then, I have worked in the interior design industry in London, on community projects in Kenya for 2 years, assisting in designing and selling crafts and I co-ordinated and painted murals, as well as being a secondary art teacher in the U.K.

I’ve always made art, over the last 3 years it has become my full time occupation. I went back to the beginning, by simply drawing. This developed into my limited edition print, card and illustrative commission business which works alongside my contemporary canvas work and any new ideas that come along.
