Born in Lancashire in 1962

Trained at Falmouth Art School, UK in 1985 and went on to do two Masters Programmes at UEL and Goldsmiths, London in fine art and modern art history respectively in the late 1990s.

I have shown my work extensively in the UK and internationally.

I have been teaching art in colleges of further education in London for 20 years. I focus on my painting practice and my studio practice is based in Hackney, East London.

Recently shortlisted for the Contemporary British Painting prize in 2021.
