My career began with 25 years as a Freeland Illustrator working in the London Advertising world allowing me to develop a vast knowledge in a diverse range of skills in various mediums. Watercolour became my chosen medium in the late 80's followed by a number of years of experimentation and struggle my work began to gain recognition being shown at The Mall, Bankside and Cork Street galleries in Open Exhibitions from 2004 through to the present day.
I moved to the Balearic Islands in 2006 where I lived for 4 years to continue to promote my fine art and tutored residential painting holidays both in Menorca and around the world. I returned to the UK in November 2010 and now live in Cumbria where I continue to paint the wonders of Lakeland life,
