About me

A creative soul. I studied Art and Aesthetics in Cardiff with first class honours degree. I hold a PGCE in FE, training as an art teacher. I love creative projects. I paint, mostly portraits and figurative work. I love and practice photography especially documentary and art. I’m presently working on a film project, mixing the mediums of film animation and photography. I directed and acted on an independent film called Don’t Look Behind You Jimmy (YouTube). I have acted on TV and independent films, I am open now to possibly work in acting again. I love creative writing, stories that inspire and stimulate my artistic flow. I’m also a music maker and interested in the marriage of sound and vision. I believe I can add to creative endeavours, being a positive influence and source of inspiration.
