I always painted in my free time during my Graphic Design work career. In 2001 I decided to study for an MA in Fine Art with The London School of Art, Kennington before becoming a full time artist in 2003.

At present I work mainly in coloured pencil but also in oil and acrylic paint, and have exhibited and sold widely.
