One day at school I remember being very impressed with my friend Damian’s drawing of a car. I didn’t understand why it was so much better than mine until I noticed a small detail that he’d added. The suspension! A small verical line with a zig-zag through it. I think this is the moment that my love for representational art began. I was 5 years old.
After having studied in Paris at the ESAG (Ecole Supérieur d’ Arts Graphiques) I came back to the UK and trained as an illustrator at the Gemini School of Illustration. I graduated in 1998. The strong foundation in representational art I received from both schools led me to pursue a career as a fine artist.
I am currently based in North London.
