The early part of my work history was spent in fringe theatre, costume and propsmaking in Birmingham, and London, where I studied Theatre Design at the Slade School of Fine Art.
I spent 6 years living and working in the United States; Chicago, and Denver.
After two more years in London, I returned to the North East, and got involved with computers, digital artwork, photography, and taught photo editing, before returning to painting in 2005.
