Biography

I am a professional international award winning artist from Leeds in West Yorkshire. Over the years I have travelled abroad extensively in search of painting subjects (to include the South of France, Venice and New York), but it is my beloved 'gritty Northern landscape which now inspires me the most! Within all my paintings I create a sense of place mixing expressionist painting techniques with figurative elements to create my unique style. With strong visual textures, brushwork and layering of different media (often in the same painting) the rich tapestry of marks I make bring the outside into your home and as you explore the paintings surface and hidden layers you begin to experience and connect with the landscape as I did, being there, painting it! My background was in the commercial world of graphic design and illustration (spanning over 22 years and working fro several blue chip clients along the way to include KPMG and PwC) before jumping straight in to my award winning fine art career and soon after doing so I gained a superb following of loyal customers and students in all walks of life. Other aspects of my award winning fine art is wildlife. As a keen naturalist, my wildlife paintings place animal or bird in the context within its native habitat to allow the viewer and patron to look beyond an expected close up and to reveal something new, unseen, or previously unappreciated. Presently I work with several leading UK art businesses and art holiday companies throughout the UK, to include Higham Hall and Rydal Hall in the Lake District, Parcevall Hall in North Yorkshire and Cober Hill near Scarborough on the Heritage Coast of East Yorkshire with a growing student following. As a leading Canson Ambassador in the UK for the world leading paper manufacturer in France, I also regularly teach workshops at l leading art events promoting this popular fine art brand of paper to include ‘Patchings Art, Craft and Photography Festival near Nottingham, ‘Art Materials Live’ at Birmingham NEC and lots more besides! Nitram Charcoal from Canada also represent me and my work on the continent in Frankfurt featuring my work at the international art fair 'Art World' which is always well received. I write regularly for 'The Artist' magazine as one of their leading contributors and demonstrators and exhibit all I create at leading art galleries throughout the UK to include the Mall Galleries to keen and receptive audiences. I'm proud to say my paintings can also be found in numerous public and private collections throughout the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United States of America....and maybe yours too!
