Statement

I have had a deep seated interest in creating art from about the age of 6, later on in life I decided to take this more seriously.

For many years I was predominantly self taught gaining knowledge from Bristol university science library studying human and animal myology and physiology, eventually I was caught and removed for not being a student.

With this knowledge and many hours drawing and sketching anything and everything I was able to specialize in classical sculpture, honing my skills with the gift industry and then at studios such as Pinewood, and Shepperton.

I have recently gained a BA Honors Degree in Fine Art.

And have been fortunate enough to work within the arts at the highest levels in both 2D and 3D.with work being sold worldwide.

Winner of the Gary Freemantle Award in Fine Art, Calling upon the experience as a professional artist both in my own practice and the artistic industry.

I am also passionate about creativity and Education, More recently I have worked within teaching establishments in order to engage directly with others that wish to follow an artistic career. I believe the ability to think laterally, creativity, should be open to all.   This belief drives my passion with others, and in the creation of new works.
