I have always had a passion for painting and drawing.A career in advertising agency art departments followed full time study at Oldham School of Art. In recent years I have worked as a freelance artist/designer with more time devoted to picture making.
Exotic holidays are always inspirational, but I also enjoy the challenge of finding something to celebrate in familiar Northern surroundings.
My art has been well received in prestigious competitionsand exhibitions. I have been awarded prizes in competitions featured in ‘The Artist’ magazine and I am a regular exhibitor and prize- winner at ‘The Artists’annual Patchings Festival.
Twice, twenty paintings have hung in Artlink exhibitions at Stockport Art Gallery. Work of mine has been purchased for public and private collections around the country and around the world, including:
Gallery Oldham – The Beautiful Game and Mumps Bridge
The Chamber of Commerce – The Business Centre
The late Eric Sykes CBE – When Oldham was a Seaport Town.
