I completed my degree and postgraduate studies at Harrow School of Art & Brighton University in 1992 specialising in Photography.
I was singled out in my final year for special bursary prizes from both Kodak and Agfa.
After graduating I taught Art, Textiles & Photography in Brighton and continued to exhibit my work in London, Brighton, Cambridge and Norfolk.
In 1998 I began to freelance full time and began to experiment with painting onto my own large colour photographic prints with oils and sewing onto the surface with a sewing machine in an attempt to develop a unique way of working with photography. It drew immediate attention from magazines and publishers and secured my first print and publishing deals. I now work with digital media using iphone and ipad. The main focus in my images today is still in making photographic images look like paintings and in capturing dreamlike, ethereal beauty. To have a unique voice in my work is still very important to me.
I have exhibited , licenced and produced commercial artwork for companies in Europe and the USA. I was selected as one of the winners in the Sotherby's International Young Artists 2001 for a series of experimental painted photographic designs.
The main outlets for my work have been in fine art cards, giftwrap, calenders, posters, limited and open edition prints, book covers and food packaging design for supermarkets.
