Born in 1960, I have always enjoyed image making, whether the process is drawing, painting, or photography. My first photographs date back to when I was nine years old, and was the proud owner of Kodak 127 roll film instamatic. Shooting mostly holiday scenics and friends, I then began to experiment painting lanscapes in oil when I was twelve. After completing art studies at school, I started work as a trainee artist for a busy London advertising studio. This provided practical experience in the technical skills of image making and design.

In 1994 I graduated from Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, England, with a first
class honours degree in Studio Art. My postgraduate study includes 'Enterprise,
Entrepreneurship and Innovation' (2008), 'Project Management' (2009), and 'Event
Design' (2010) at the University Centre Folkestone, England.

Following unviversity life, I have been busy working on mixed-media and printmaking projects and commissions from my studio at St.Barnabas Press in Cambridge until 2005, when a move to the beautiful south coast of England, enabled me to work from my home studio 'L'Atelier Blanc', and at my Creative Foundation studio in the heart of Folkestone's Creative Quarter. Working in partnership with local art groups we are developing a community arts facility in Dover, currently sited in the Charlton Arts Centre in the centre of town.
I am also currently busy looking after the website design and management for a number of our local art groups.


My artwork has been commissioned and represented in various publications, with solo and group exhibitions showing in the UK, France, Holland, Spain, Germany, Italy and the USA.
