About me
My works have featured in world of interiors magazine, Cotswolds country living, home and Garden, and currently have 23 prints at Icanvas Painting began for me at a young age. From when I was able to, I was drawing and soon painting. As a rower, spending so much time outdoors on the water, my focus soon turned into an obsession with the effects of light in the sky and reflections on water. I am fascinated by strong rich colours and apply my strokes in an impasto application that allow the colours to explode out from the canvas. I have studied Fine Art throughout my life and attended Byam Shaw School Of Art and Design, now part of Central St Martins in London. After leaving London I moved to Bristol where I studied and completed a BETEC Diploma in Fine Art. I soon found myself selling various works before persisting with my other passion, rowing. In 2001, I was part of the Leander Rowing Team that went onto win the Thames Challenge Cup at Henley Royal Regatta. During my time rowing I graduated in Sports Science and I am currently the proud Head Rowing Coach at The University Of The West Of England, Bristol
