I was born in the West Midlands, England in 1974 and began drawing as soon as I could pick up a pencil! My love of painting and drawing continued all through my childhood and at the age of 19 I went to art college to study Art and Design for 2 years.

After leaving college I joined Bilston and Battersea Enamels where I was trained to paint on enamel. I remained there for 13 years, painting for both Halcyon Days Enamels and Bilston and Battersea. In 2009 I left Bilston and Battersea and started to paint my own watercolours. 

I have now been an artist for over 16 years. My love of painting has never left me and I enjoy painting all kinds of wildlife and get inspiration from my walks in the countryside. My favourite subjects are birds, especially birds of prey.
