After graduating from Kent Institute of Art & Design at Canterbury in 1990, I spent almost twenty years as a mural artist and set painter working within the film industry and BBC. I now paint full time and run a couple of Masterclasses each month. I sell my work from my studio gallery in the beautiful seaside town of Whitstable, Kent, as well as through various galleries in the UK and abroad, including the RA Summer Show. The studio/gallery is usually open from 11 – 5pm every day, also my work is for sale from this website. (If you’re planning to visit, just call me first). The following is a short documentary video about me and my work (6mins).
