I've studied with a select range of leading artists including Michael Porter, RWA and Caroline Hulse, FRSA whose techniques and approaches to their own work influenced my direction as an abstract and expressive creator. I work in a range of media using landscape, in its broadest sense, as my main inspiration. I held my first Solo Exhibition in 2010 sponsored by Berrymans Solicitors of Nottingham. Over the years I've been selected to exhibit at some significant galleries and public spaces, and been elected as a member of several Art Societies. I'm currently a member of Leicester Society of Artists (Elected 2016).
