I am an artist with writing aspirations leading to, I hope, the creation of moving images that at the same time are commercial commodities and artistic endeavours that demonstrate a visual difference to the norm.

I  graduated from University of the Arts London in 2009 with a Master of Arts, specialising in printmaking. My art practice combines both painting and printmaking and the 3D. Nearly all my work now utilises text, usually in the form of verse.

Prior to becoming a semi-full-time fine artist, I worked in the advertising industry as an illustrator/art director and creative for over 30 years. I will still work on commercial projects especially if they are interesting.

The decision to concentrate more on the fine art was made late in life but I feel like an excited kid at the future prospects.
