I am an artist and a blogger who supports other independent creatives with practical advice, tips. and insight from my 30+ years of experience of the art world through my regular blog and social media updates.
I primarily use digital techniques and paint by hand with a stylus and also paint using traditional mediums too. I specialise in creating artwork depicting nature, landscapes, and abstracts. I also create book covers and artwork for use in TV and film sets.
I live in Staffordshire, England, with my wife, daughter, and two dogs, and I frequently travel across Europe and the United States. My work is sold online and can be ordered through more than 150 retail locations across the USA and Canada.
My passion is to create work which is inspired by my travels around the world and my love for the work of independent creatives globally. In 2004, I received a royal award from HRH Princess Anne for my services in delivering environmental education to disadvantaged groups and authoring academic qualifications related to the protection of the environment.
Outside of my artwork I also work in Justice and have previously worked and qualified as a Senior Medical Technical Officer in Orthopaedics. I also qualified as a teacher of further adult education and regularly work with colleges and universities. I am also a regular public speaker covering topics from art to the environment to cyber security. My love for the arts goes back to my childhood and the awe of seeing works of art on display in some of the world's finest galleries and arts institutions.
I am proud to be an independent visual artist and to support other independent creatives around the world.
