I was born near Barnsley, South Yorkshire and am the youngest of a family of seven, all artistic in our own ways! I have always enjoyed drawing and painting and after finishing school moved up to Newcastle to train as an art teacher. Upon completing this I stayed in the area, eventually moving to Hexham in Northumberland, a beautiful little market town within the Northumberland National Park. I didn’t take up teaching but instead forged a career in Local Government. Life has a habit of getting in the way and so I abandoned my artistic leanings until I reached a significant age (50) when a “now or never” moment propelled me to pick it up again. I have never looked back and have developed a real and abiding passion for art. When I left work 8 years later it gave me the opportunity I needed to develop my art and I am now on a journey of discovery and experimentation. You can read more of this in my blog and follow me on Facebook and Twitter. Thank you for visiting my site, I hope you enjoy it.
If you are interested in commissioning me to create a unique piece of art please contact me to discuss.
