What I do:

My goal is to be a full time artist, but for now I use my free time to paint using acrylics or more recently experimenting with gouache as well. 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 I took to get where I am 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 creative opportunities I'm 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.

My proudest moment:

Making my first sale online – 3 original paintings to one buyer!

My dream creative collaboration:

An interior designer who could use my art in their interior designs/home staging

What does Wakefield mean to me?
I grew up in the Home Counties but I moved to Yorkshire in 2007 and I absolutely love it! Wakefield and the countryside around it is beautiful
