Prior to that my creative design background was in advertising creation, graphic design and marcoms.
This gave me the groundwork and amazing opportunities to develop my artistic and design skills.
Not to mention honing my natural flair for colour.
I also learned to value the importance of the visual story and attention to fine detail.
In tandem with my design-based career, I continued my lifelong passion for painting, nurturing
the dream of working solely on my art. In 2005 the time felt right to exhibit my paintings in public for the first time and I was awed by the enthusiastic response to my work.
So I took the plunge to focus full-time on my art. Took numerous art courses. Was awarded a place on Farnham University for the Creative Arts’ Artist Development Program where I was mentored for a year by a professional art dealer. And threw myself heart and soul into developing my art practice, as well as marketing and selling my work. Sixteen years later, and I have never looked back!
And I really enjoy having direct contact and conversations with the people who enjoy and buy my paintings.
I undertake commissions from both private and commercial clients. My paintings feature in private collections in the UK and abroad, including the USA, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Ireland, France, Spain and Germany.
