I trained in graphic design at Cumbria College of Art and worked for twelve years after that in the printing industry, before becoming a full time artist. My earlier training has a direct influence on my `shelflife`work, which includes many different types of packaging and typography.
I paint with artists gouache as I find it a most versatile medium and I also like to use pastel for certain portraits. My work has been exhibited several times at the Mall Galleries and Bankside Gallery in London. Locally my paintings can be purchased at the Lake Artists Summer exhibition and at Youdell`s Art Shop and Gallery or visit my facebook pages:
