After studying for a Foundation Course in Art & Design at Wolver Hampton University, I then went on to study for a Bachelor of Arts degree at Trinity and All Saints College, Leeds, from 1982-1985. Shortly afterwards, in 1986, I was awarded a grant from the ‘Princes Youth Business Trust’ and was one of the few people chosen to represent the ‘Princes Youth Business Trust’ at the Chelsea Flower Show in 1990. Although I have been a professional artist since 1986, I was probably first aware of having talent when I was just 10 years old. While my family is not obviously artistic, there are a few notable exceptions. I come from a long line of entrepreneurs and those that are very skilled with their hands.
My exhibitions have taken place at the Albert Docks in Liverpool, Chelsea Flower Show and numerous ‘Princes Youth Business Trust’ shows at the NEC in Birmingham. As well as this I have also held my own one-woman show for over 12 years. This major exhibition was held, for the first time in 2001, at the Halcyon Gallery in Birmingham and was a resounding success. My work is now sold widely both here in the UK and in America, as well as other countries, in the form of limited editions, posters, and greeting cards.
