I am an artist based in Leeds, West Yorkshire and my aim is to share my art and my passion for art with other people. I actively strive to stretch the boundaries of my skills and knowledge by doing courses, devouring literature and programmes on art, researching artists, visiting galleries and participating in art events. I apply my skills and learning by working on self-initiated projects, taking on commissions, demonstrations and workshops and regularly entering exhibitions and competitions. I do most of my work in my home studio, painting from photos or composing a still-life, developing and interpreting the original picture giving my own interpretation of the form and structure of the subject. Armed with a sketchbook and drawing or painting materials, I explore the wider arts scene through sketches and simple studies of real experiences when being out and about. I often have more than one artwork on the go as I am always brimming over with ideas. My art portfolio covers an eclectic range of subjects, styles, and techniques and, with practice and experimentation, my style and technique has developed and matured over the years. Currently, I am consolidating my style and subject choices to develop a cohesive and comprehensive body of work.
