A B O U T
My early years were spent in Belgium and Spain until the age of ten when we came back to the UK. I took a Media and Design degree at Portsmouth as a mature student, a PGCE in Art and Design and an MA in Cultural and Critical Theory at Brighton. I enjoy the history of art and architecture and draw inspiration from images, text, nature and the built environment.
My own belief about art is that it is a shared experience and that an artist should be interested in the emotional integrity of his work. Art should awaken the senses and give something to the viewer whether it is aesthetic or experiential. Art, I feel, should have a human face and a warm heart awakening the innate creativity in others.
