I've loved anything creative since I was small and I've been lucky enough to study art
at Cambridge College of Art & Design and with other artists,
but I gave it up when I left college and developed a career working in IT.
I began painting again 10 years ago and can't believe I waited so long. I
paint in a range of styles; large acrylic abstract
and impressionist pieces,
portraits and also create Digital Art combining my love of IT. My work is known for its warmth and vibrant colours.
I believe that the 'things' we surround ourselves with affect our state of mind
and can lift and inspire us or drag us down (part of the Feng Shui
philosophy). This is why I've created a section in my website to
explain more about Feng Shui Art and how you can use it when choosing
artwork for your home.
