In the mid 1990s I gave up a very interesting career writing books, designing tools and inventing new techniques in the world of high end cake decorating in order to fulfil a lifelong ambition of becoming an artist. I was lucky enough to be accepted on a fine arts course, since which time I have thought of very little else but painting and drawing.
My inspiration comes from the world around me, in particular nature with all its wonderful colours, shapes, textures, majesty and beauty. I do not have a style because I am a very experimental painter always looking for a different way of expressing a subject. I consider myself a very fortunate person being in a position to "live the dream" even if, from time to time, I do find myself covered in paint.
