I am a passionate and self-taught artist working in my studio at Vernon Mill in Stockport, Cheshire. I would describe myself as a mixed media colourist as it is my intention to engage my audience in my use of vibrant colours and interesting tactile textures in my paintings, designs and forms. Much of my work is based on nature, however I am diverse regarding subject matter to keep fresh with ideas.
Born in 1959 in Bowden, Cheshire, I struggled through school academia due to my Dyslexia, yet excelled at art; I always knew from my early years that all I ever wanted to be was an artist.
I admit that I don’t sleep well because my creative mind becomes most active in the middle of the night when most people are sound asleep. So I have a sketchpad next to my bed, in fact they are everywhere, even the glove compartment of the car, in case I need to capture my ideas. I’m inspired by anything and everything!
