Born and raised in England. I grew up exploring the forests and ancient castles of Northern England and Wales, listening to tales of legend and folklore from my Father. All of this magic had a profound influence on my imagination.
I feel that imagination is a little universe within each and everyone of us. As an artist I am truly drawn to the idea of unlocking imagination and creating artwork from this essence, bringing to life the influences from my youth. It has always been so exciting to lose myself when creating my artwork, to wander and explore magical places in the mind. Bringing them to life on the canvas is an exhilarating and magical process. I treasure each painting I create, they always seem to have their own personality and uniqueness. I never know what they will look like until they are finished. To me this is the most exciting part!
When creating my paintings I have always loved exploring and working with different mediums. However, I am strongly drawn to the use of acrylics and watercolours. I simply love that you can easily mix them with water and create beautiful fluid layers of colour with a sense of movement and openness. My work always has magical elements, like the moon, stars, forests and galaxies, bringing these elements to life with the use of colour and texture.
Having grown up in South Manchester, as a child I loved exploring the forests and woods near to where we lived, this was something I found utterly enchanting and drawn to. I feel this had the biggest influence for my work, the stillness and magic you feel from these places has always amazed me. For me, I just feel so at peace when I am with nature. Long forest walks are something I still love, and I feel lucky to have these spaces near to where I currently live and work, which is near to Newcastle Upon Tyne in England. I feel it really allows 'space' in the mind to create. I quite often head for a long woodland walks to capture the feeling of magic from the woods. To bring it to life within my work.
