I was born in Sunderland in 1968 where, after raising my family, I completed a BA Foundation Art Degree at City of Sunderland College and then went on to The University of Sunderland where I studied Fine Art.
Working primarily in oils my paintings are always inspired by the human figure and my love of nostalgic imagery. I take inspiration from vintage magazines, vintage toys and a great love of portraiture. Paint is applied both figuratively and abstractly. Whilst all my paintings are representational, they are not limited to a particular style and the experimentation of oil paint plays a major role in my art
