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.
I am currently the deputy manager and sole professional framer at Chester Art Centre. We provide gallery space for artists to display their work in exhibitions or to hold workshops and teach classes. We have a shop where we sell art supplies and a fully equipt photography studio. We also provide a bespoke framing service and a professional giclee printing service.
