I am a Derbyshire based artist who works mainly in portraiture and also primarily in paint media (oils and acrylics)
I began painting seriously in 2017 and have been working steadily since on private commissions and work for exhibitions and competition.
I also currently work part time within the NHS but paint in any spare time I can!
If you have any questions for me, or would like to know more about my art or practice, please feel free to contact me.
I am also currently exhibition secretary for Ilkeston Arts and Camera Club. Based in Ilkeston since 1902 it is a meeting place for local artists and photographers. We hold competitions, exhibitions, workshops and creative sessions. If you are interested in finding out more about the club, click the link below:
