I am a self employed artist living and working in Colchester in the South-East of England.
I have been drawing and painting since childhood. This has come, I think, from being a day dreamer whose neck is always craned to look up or around instead of ahead; I’m always observing the world around me – noticing the colour and texture of things.
In early 2001 I went to live in Florence, Italy and began to practice my art full time. For the year that followed I painted this beautiful city and its surroundings. Since then I have travelled in South East Asia and Morocco where I have tried to record elements of daily life.
As well as painting the real world, I also enjoy letting my imagination run away from me to create imaginary, children’s book illustration style pictures. Whilst these may be much stranger, I still like to create a world on the canvas that the viewer feels they could enter and walk around in.
