After studying Art through to A - Level at school I completed a BTEC foundation course at Cumbria College of Art & Design in Carlisle.
After this I then went on to complete a Design Studies Degree down in Wolverhampton.
After this my art career stalled somewhat and I worked in several different jobs including in Block Buster videos - when DVD’s were just coming out! As a security guard and then in life insurance.
I always kept on doing my artwork though in the background - lots of pet commissions.
In 2006 we moved back down to Carlisle and I started working at an Estate Agency I continued doing bits of drawing here and there and continued to feel like something was missing.
In December 2013 I began working on some originals besides my commissions and started to sell in a couple of local galleries.
Since this I have had my work in multiple galleries in Cumbria and taken part in many exhibitions both solo and as part of various groups. I am currently a Derwent Ambassador and enjoyed having several solo exhibitions at the Pencil Museum.
