I was born in Brighton on the same day as the first National Lottery draw. 

First introduced to the possibilities of a creative career by my family, who were able to take my brother to London to see exhibitions. As well as viewing art, music and theatre across the South East.

 

My Grandad was also an artist, and I spent many hours at his studio learning from him. He was determined that his grandchildren would be able to utilise their creativity. As well as always trying to push us into career paths that suited our abilities.

 

I studied my art foundation at Northbrook College and my Fine Arts degree at Cardiff Metropolitan University.

My partner (Brendan Stokes) and I moved to Stroud in 2018 where I have been able to begin my career as an artist. Having my first solo exhibition, starting to sell products with my artwork on and being able to work in a local gallery.
