About the Artist
I paint and print in a variety of media and subjects including, portraits, semi-abstract landscapes and abstract works. My latest work includes an installation of time based moving abstract, projections involved with the interaction of colours.

I am proud to belong to ArtCan a group of multinational artists based in London and have exhibited with them in several venues in London. Having previously been a director of Knighton Lane Artists Group Ltd, where I had a studio space, I am now an associate member because I now own my own studio. As an unpaid director of this limited company I helped in working as a treasurer while the building was undergoing renovations and improvements funded with grants from Leicester City Council and The Arts Council. I have also work as a primary school teacher.
