I was born in 1972 in Northern Ireland, but grew up in County Durham, England.  

In 2001 I graduated from the University of Sunderland with a first class BA in fine art.  I have subsequently won a number of art awards and exhibited around the UK, including central London, where I have sold work. 

I currently live in West Sussex, England.  My time is divided between working as a private art tutor for both children and adults, taking portrait commissions and fitting in time on my personal painting, which is the subject of this site.

This is me looking like I have a glass eye:
