Born and raised in Cardiff. I live just outside a beautiful village in the Vale of Glamorgan. I trained in Fine Art & Visual Culture in UWE - Bower Ashton, graduating in 1997. Seventeen years experience as a youth worker for Prince’s Trust Cymru and Educational Visits/Behaviour Coordinator at a Cardiff SEN school, delivering personal development programmes to support young adults and children with challenging behaviour and learning/special educational needs.
My career has given me the unique opportunity to utilise my artistic and outdoor pursuits (Hiking/Orienteering) skills and experience to support young adults and children with their confidence, employment skills and lifelong learning.
My main inspiration comes from the natural landscape and my work is focused on memory and experience - walking, hiking and camping/bivvies within the natural environment of Wales and UK. However, I am focused on creating/recreating images of many different subject matter through observation and memory.
I am versatile with my subject matter and focus on the challenge of specific private/public commissions that can involve a wide variety of subject matter, including portraiture, highly detailed monochrome studies and painting landscapes, seascapes and townscapes. My aim is to include anyone who requests a specific commission, to get involved in the creative planning process as much as they feel comfortable.
