After Art college my career began to take shape within the carpet industry where I created exclusive designs for hotels, ships, leisure facilities and private individuals.

A few years later I relocated to Yorkshire to join the studio of a large greetings card company, latterly Hallmark UK. During the seven years here I created numerous designs for cards, wrapping paper and stationery products for major retailers such as John Lewis, Sainsbury’s, Marks & Spencer and WH Smith. I then went freelance eventually starting my own greetings card company.

During this time I discovered my passion for painting landscapes and seascapes and now enjoy creating on a far larger scale. I have an impressionistic style and my paintings often described as having a sense of peace and tranquility.

I am continuously inspired by the stunningly beautiful countryside and coastal areas we have here in the UK, particularly Northumberland, Yorkshire, West Sussex, Devon and Cornwall. I currently live in the quaint and historic City of Durham.
