I am a professional artist, working in mixed media, creating contemporary artwork which has a rough, primitive, naivety. Working intuitively and spontaneously I use collagraph printing techniques, brushes and sticks, as well as collage to create my whimsical paintings and drawings which are full of colour and humour.
I have participated in group shows, solo shows and juried exhibitions, and my work hangs in private collections all over the world, and has been used in several TV and film productions, including Channel 4’s Cucumber, the new feature film ‘The Ninth Life Of Louis Drax’, starring Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, and Fifty Shades of Grey’s Jamie Dornan. Also, a new German TV drama, The Watcher, which is being filmed in Manchester.
My work is predominantly figurative. I am infinitely fascinated by faces, bodies, people. Sometimes these people are surreal or they turn into weird monsters or animals.

Today I am having an Eighties day …. I was 20 in 1980 so all the music I play will be from around this date, give or take a year! Looking forward to loads of great hits and plenty of illustration today.
After my little foray into abstracts this last few weeks, I am back on to my creepy grotesque cute ugly, folk art again. I love painting these, because I can really go as wild and outrageous as I like. The weirder the better really! / Sometimes, I suppose, people just ’don’t get’ my art. That’s OK though, my contemporary folk style work is very quirky and somewhat like Mar…
