I’m inspired by the natural world around us and I love to paint landscapes and seascapes, I love to provide some escapism for me and the viewers of my artwork. My autistic son has inspired one of my collections as sometimes he just needs some wide open space and fresh air to overcome any feelings of overwhelm.What steps did you take to get where you are now?I've been painting for over 20 years, and I'm self-taught. I've sold some paintings over the years, but I haven't been consistently creating. I'm now at a point in my life where I'd like to become a full time Artist so I started my digital presence in 2021 which is how I have made my recent sales.What type of creative opportunities are you looking for?I’m looking for more "real life" (as opposed to digital/virtual) opportunities to showcase and sell my art to individual buyers, restaurants and hotels. I'd love to work with interior designers and home stagers to create perfect pieces for peoples' homes.Answer as many of the following questions as you like to enhance your profile pageMy dream creative collaboration would be...An interior designer who could use my art in their interior designs/home stagingWhat does Wakefield mean to you?I grew up in the Home Counties but I moved to Yorkshire in 2007 and I absolutely love it!
