Trained at John Moore's University, Livepool - Gained BA Honours in Fine Art - 1996.
Gained MA in Fine Art at Liverpool University - 1998.
My post-graduate training has included Masterclasses with Sir Eduardo Paolozzi and Prof. Philip Melton at Edinburgh University. I have completed workshops with Mo Jupp, John Maltby, Mary Lloyd Jones, Lys Hanson and Margaret Hunter. I have also undertaken study tours to Florence, Venice and New York. My exhibitions have been in numerous locations, around both the UK and the rest of Europe.
Over the years my work has developed through several different styles. Increasingly my choice has been to focus on the use of colour to produce vibrant and exciting paintings.
Wassily Kandinsky -
"Colour is a power which directly influences the soul".
Paul Cezanne -
"There is a logic of colours, and it is with this alone, and not with the logic of the brain, that the painter should conform".
Claude Monet -
"Colour is my day-long obsession, joy and torment".
