First Class BA Hons Fine Art, University of Bolton 2009
Art & Design Foundation Studies, Grimsby College Of Art 1990
I am a painter living and working in Manchester but I was born and raised in Lincolnshire where my artistic journey began at Grimsby College of Art in 1989. After years of painting as a hobby, I decided to study Fine Art full-time at university and graduated with a first class honors degree in 2009. Since then I have exhibited locally in collaborative and group shows around Greater Manchester and had my first solo exhibition in 2010. I have work in private collections around the UK.
I find inspiration in unexpected places, being particularly drawn to the mundane and the overlooked. In terms of the landscape I favour the edge-lands and in-between places, or bleak moorlands and wild coastal areas that are sculpted by the elements. My aim is to try and capture the essence of a place, it's atmosphere, it's history and my own experience of it.
