I am an illustrator who has been engrossed in one form of art or another from a very young age. I love the creative process that is required to produce a truly outstanding piece of work and the way it makes me feel. Having said that, I have had a couple of years break mainly due to family bereavement, but now, am ready to start again and what better way than with the Leigh Art Trail and by producing a portrait of my dad that I am truly proud of.

I have exhibited and sold my work in the past at the various venues, such as Westcliff Art Trail, Beecroft Gallery, Village Green and Southend Library. Over the last couple of years though I have taken a step back from exhibiting due to personal reasons however I now feel it is the right time for me to start again and I feel very positive about the future and have also embarked on a degree in Illustration with the OCA.
