I was born in a small market town called Wolsingham in Weardale, County Durham where I spent my early childhood.
The wonderful memories I have of carefree days paddling in the nearby river (so pretty!) and watching the world go by are still so vivid its like I was there yesterday!
I didnt realize at the time how much my fascination for nature and wildlife would shape my life as a person and an artist.
Taking my fond memories with me, I moved to Nottingham where I spent the rest of my childhood days. Through my imagination and sketches, I found a way of escaping all the hustle and bustle of the city so I could tread the path of nature once again.
It wasnt until recent years that I truly found that my artwork is not just brush strokes on a piece of paper, it is who I am and what I share with you.
It is only within the last 5 years that I have discovered the joy of painting with various mediums including; oil, acrylic and pastel. I also like to experiment with different materials to create texture within my artwork. I love to paint many different subjects in a contemporary style.

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.
In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.
After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.
We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.
Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.
In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.
The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.
Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.
After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.
For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.
As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
