From a very young age my family noticed that I was gifted and talented in art through my drawings as a child. I had always enjoyed drawing, especially portraits and figures. I would draw my idols such as favourite wrestlers and David Bowie. My school teachers always noticed my talent and encouraged me to pursue fine art. During my high school years I drew very tight, realistic pencil drawings. This is when my passion for drawing and art really grew and I decided to study Fine Art at college and then go on to achieve a BA (Hons) in Fine Art at University.
I began to experiment with many different medias at college and developed my skills using paint. At university I was encouraged to integrate conceptual ideas behind my work and hone in on particular medias which I preferred to use. Today, I mainly work in oil and acrylic paint but find acrylics lend themselves better to the spontaneous approach in my work. I specialise in figurative art in acrylic paint as I have always been fascinated and inspired by the human form. I have recently been commissioned by the Grosvenor Museum in Chester and many famous celebrities own pieces of my work.
Chester Art Centre and I have worked in partnership for a number of years. They provide gallery space for artists to display their work in exhibitions or to hold workshops and teach classes. They have a shop where which sells art supplies and a fully equipt photography studio. They also provide a bespoke framing service and a professional giclee printing service.
