I have been executing and selling my paintings for more than 30 years since I was 15 years old. In 1999 I was awarded my MA in European Fine Art in Barcelona where I continued to live and execute my work as a frelance artist painter for 20 years, until relocating to Wirral in 2022.
I am a fan of artists such as Robert Rauschenberg and Catalan Antonio Tàpies for their use of different textures and collage, and painters such as Friedensreich Hundertwasser and David Hockney for their use of colour and form. Artists such as these highly inspire me when researching ideas for new paintings. Like Rauschenberg, I love to upcycle objects and thrown away furniture, experimenting with collage and various other mediums. The materials I use depict which mediums, whether it be paint, pastel, or ink.
My home studio overlooks West Kirby Marine Lake, which has been inspiring many of my seascapes and coastal paintings.
