I am originally from England and moved over here at the age of 19. I attended university and obtained a BA in graphic design and fine art. The first 10 years of my creative life were spent working as a graphic artist and art director.

I left my art director job to pursue a professional life in art. Over the following years I continued to evolve my creative path, painting and drawing whenever I could. It was during this period that I changed my direction from a traditional realist, painting and drawing in pen and ink to a more abstract style. My main subject of focus in realism was animals.

I continued on this path but started to add more abstracted work of my animal subjects I began to follow the path of abstract art and moved into mixed media collages, fluid acrylic, and mixed media painting. I now do pen and ink and acrylic paintings in realism as an occasional distraction and on a commissioned basis only.

My style is eclectic, using various outlets for my creative mind to explore. Fluid acrylic is my usual medium of choice. I believe there is never too much an artist can learn and there are always new techniques to try. I do, however, endeavor to create a distinctive style within each one of my creative paths. Read Less
