I've been working as an artist in various capacities since the spring of 1999. I've been exhibiting for a little longer in both the USA and the UK and have also worked in both countries as an artist and art teacher. I began my artist career as a figurative painter and have evolved into an illustrator and sculptor. My illustrations are now focused on the abstract with a heavy interest in line while my sculptures are a continuing exploration of the known universe and the elements we use to understand it. I'm at a point in my career where I feel I must improve my credentials so I'm currently enrolled in a postgraduate course at Central Saint Martins and also am actively looking for new career changes as my current freelance lifestyle is failing to sustain me.Locked Pro Plan feature

I worked as a freelance illustrator to produce an ink drawing for an episode in season 1 of "Queen of the South" television series for TVM Productions, Inc in Dallas Texas. I worked remotely from London. My ink drawing was of Jesus Malverde for an alter piece of the scene for the episode. My contact for the work was set decorator, A. Michelle Young.
I provided a few solar prints of my toothpick sculptures for the props/set dressing department for episodes of the 2nd season of "Dallas" TV series. My contact was set decorator, A. Michelle Young.
I provided 3 paintings/illustrations to be used on episodes of the 2nd season of "Dallas" TV series. My contact was set decorator, A. Michelle Young.
I produced one painting and two faux lithographs for the episodes of the 2nd season of the TV series "Dallas". My contact was set decorator, A.Michelle Young.
For 3 years I taught all levels of art to ages 10 to 18 as the full time art teacher. They laid me and several other teachers off due to lack of interest in the arts. Academics and sports took priority at this school.
I designed, created and painted the drop for the schools 8th grade musical. I also organised and supervised a committee of helpers for the set. The production was "Oliver Twist" and my drop was ten foot tall by forty foot long of the city of London.
I'm currently trying to fund the last year of my masters degree at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London as I currently don't make enough money to survive being a freelance artist. I'm expected to return to my final year by October 2017 and plan to receive my degree in July 2018.
My first degree was in Painting and Printmaking at the Kansas City Art Institute in Missouri, USA. I studied primarily figure drawing in charcoal and oil painting with my final thesis focusing on the human form.
