I revisited my childhood passion for painting while living in New York city. New York is a city where artists have always congregated and there are many amazing schools and studios as a result, as well as fantastic museums and art galleries, so it truly was an inspirational place for me to live.
I studied at the New York Academy of Art for a number of years and discovered an absolute love of oil paint. I also attended the New York Studio School and Chelsea Classical Studio as well as workshops and private tuition with many talented artists. I have worked with, amongst others, Jennifer Gennari, Robert Armetta, Michelle Doll and Alyssa Monks.
I returned to the UK in 2018 and now live in the Brecon Beacons national park. I love painting animals and people as well as being inspired by the beautiful landscape that surrounds my home. I’m very lucky to be able to spend my time doing something that gives me so much pleasure.
