The entanglement of human emotion and nature; inspired by internal and external observation, the written word and imagination. Etching, lithography and paint are my choice of media. I live and work in Sheffield and have been a practicing artist for over ten years. This year I have been involved in a year long group touring exhibiton called 'The Adam and Eve Project' one venue being Southwell Minster. Following on from this I am presently creating work for another proposed touring exhibition based on the subject of 'Angels'. At the begining of the year I was elected a member of MAFA (Manchester Academy of Fine Art) Recent successes are: 2017 Painting Selected by National Open Art exhibited at ArtRooms London. 2016 Poetry into Art Millstone Grit Awarded third prize Selected for “Small Print International'. Touring Exhibition. Winner of The Harley Foundation Prize The Harley Gallery Welbeck at the The National Open Exhibition Royal College of Art Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize London (highly acclaimed award) 2014 Selected to exhibit at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Awarded ‘The Trustees Prize’ for the best in the show at Great Northern Art Show 2014 held at Ripon Cathedral. The judges comments were: “A deeply felt and meditative painting in a tradition that goes back through Cecil Collins and Craigie Atchison. All essential detail stripped away letting the sombre colour and apparently simple form carry the force of the image”.

Will undertake commissions
