I have been a commercial artist and art tutor for several years, producing designs for the greetings industry in America, mainly Christmas themes. The designs are used on cards, gift wrap and packaging, and it is a fast moving, trend driven environment.

 

I have enjoyed working in this way, but it is only really in the last two years that I have decided to try sell my own paintings, looking at different subjects and using a wider range of media.  A renewed love of painting emerged after seeing inspiring photos from the Lake District and Cumbria. I have really enjoyed using acrylics to create some very large canvasses.

In July 2018, I had a major breakthrough and won the ‘People’s Choice’ in an open exhibition in Loughborough, and the prize was to have my own solo exhibition. I am now taking full advantage of this great opportunity, to fulfil some ambitions and dreams and make art a full time occupation.

My exhibition at the Sock Gallery, Loughborough will take place in May 2020.

I hope you enjoy looking at my work and also hope you will contact me if you are interested in a special commission, and any information, thank you!
