Born in the North East, on leaving Art collage, I travelled extensively, living in America, Spain and South Korea. I returned to the North East and continued to paint. I achieved by BA Hons in Art & Design at Sunderland University and previously worked and exhibited in the Viking Gallery. My new series of work is my response to the stunning North East coast line. Living in Tynemouth I never tire of the ever-changing seas and skies. Working in oil paint I use deep vibrant colours to re-create the power and energy of the sea and skylines.
