About 

During Sixth Form College my Art Teacher introduced me to a Life Drawing Class that would 'help improve my drawing skill.'  Since joining this class I haven't looked back.  It opened new opportunities like exhibiting with various Local Art Societies and meeting different Artists of all abilities. Now my work appears in Shops, Exhibitions and local events in Cumbria. 

My artwork aims to capture the light, shadows and atmosphere of a place or person.  I follow the light of the Lake District and apply a colourful contemporary likeness.  From the charming corridors of Ulverston’s Market Town to the rolling mountains of the Lakes, I try to remove the distance between the viewer and the sublime.

 

I studied Art at Lancaster and Morecambe College between 2013-2013 where I gained a Level 3/4 Diploma in Fine Art.

In 2016 I graduated from The University of Worcester with a First in Illustration and soon returned to The Lake District where I focused primarily on painting.
