Biography: As a child I always loved painting and drawing but never knew what to do with my ability. I went to art school as it was the only subject I excelled at. Having got a foundation course certificate I still didn't know what I was doing. I didn't really know who I was and never used my talent to find out. I came from a background that didn't exactly encourage self expression. I guess I was lacking in the emotional maturity to question myself, so I eventually decided to head off in a different direction choosing to study film at degree level. After having various soul destroying jobs (to pay off the student debts), I realised that the world of work was never going to give me any personal gratification and I should try and find that elsewhere. So I picked up my paint brushes again and began to experiment. It had taken me all those years to understand who I was and what I wanted in my life. I found that the ideas came flooding out. This is where my main body of work Landscape of the Minds was started. I have exhibited in Oxfordshire over the past fews years with a solo exhibition held at Chipping Norton Theatre Gallery in September 2006. Most of the original work has now been acquired by private collectors. However I am working on more paintings in this series which should be available in the next few months.
