I was born in Birmingham where l studied art and design at Bournville School Of Art gaining a national diploma. I went on to study a higher Diploma in Technical Illustration at the University of Central England. I also learnt the art of picture framing between my studies. I opened Stoneway Gallery in 2002. In my painting l endeavour to capture light, colour and the ambiance of the landscape. Many of my paintings have been commissioned by people locally and abroad. I’ve exhibited in the RBSA and BWS exhibitions and am a society member. I’m always happy to discuss commissions for my style of work, which can be viewed at Stoneway Gallery.
