I am an artist and I have exhibited in several galleries and continue to sell originals and limited editions prints. Originally, from Lincoln I have lived in the East Riding of Yorkshire for the last 25 years. I originally, qualified as an interior designer and then qualified as an architect, however, my real passion has always been art.
I have recently completed a commission for TV chef and personality Rosemary Shrager. I completed a very large painting for Rosemary's cookery school in Royal Tunbridge Wells and created several screen print pictures for her local patisserie.
As part of my creative journey, I have designed a glassware range which includes champagne flutes, whisky tumblers and pint glasses. The glasses have been a natural progression to continue the 'pub/drinking' artwork series, whilst the glass provided an alternative surface to canvas.
I have worked in collaboration with a pottery in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire who have hand made the glasses. There are ten processes, which the glasses go through before completion. In short, the glasses are silk screen printed to give a great quality, lithographed and then fired in kilns before being packaged by hand ready to send to you.
I am currently working on some new mixed media artwork, which explores a resonance with the past along with a contemporary twist.
