I am a photographer, artist and teacher. I have photographed and painted for over twenty five years. For the majority of this time people and and their urban environment were my fascination. I initially studied Fine Art Coventry university, then went on to a postgraduate diploma in Fine Art Chelsea college of Art. This all changed in 2018 when I took a trip to Lindisfarne. Visiting Lindisfarne made me realise the impact that landscape had on my life. I had always considered my painting as a representation of the moment. It occurred to me that landscape offers a similar challenge and interest; to apprehend the moment.
