Brighton on the South Coast of England has been home since 1991. We moved a lot when I was young as my dad was in the RAF; Cyprus, Buckinghamshire, Norfolk, Kent and Sussex to name a few places. Sunday afternoons back then were spent driving around the English countryside looking at beautiful houses. This fed my imagination and is the reason I love to draw buildings.

I never studied art at School but in my early 30s I went to evening classes in Brighton and studied, journaling and mural painting. I became serious about my work in 2016 by building myself a web presence from a redundancy package from 15 years of working in catering. I like to work in silence (no music), at least to begin with, when I’m trying to get my initial ideas and sketches onto paper. When I’m satisfied and my ideas are taking root, I then savour my first coffee of the day. Don’t hesitate to contact me If you would like more information about purchasing prints/paintings, acquiring rights to use any of the images on this website, or have any enquiries about COMMISSIONING me.
