I was born and raised in the Rossendale Valley in Lancashire, a typical post-cotton town held on the crux of change. After studying at Swansea and Weymouth I followed a career in the voluntary sector working with people with disabilities. It was privileged work. In 2004 I suffered a serious motor cycle accident as a result of which I lost the use of my right arm/hand and experience constant severe peripheral nerve pain. In 2009 I started painting and found it a source of great solace, inspiration opening doors to my imaginative life previously locked. Originally working in water colour I have tried pastel, charcoal and also love to draw in good old-fashioned pencil. My style can loosely be described as expressionistic. I paint indoors and outdoors taking inspiration from whatever arises.I have exhibited at a NW England Outside In exhibition and my photographs have been showcased by the BBC. Thank you for showing an interest.
