I was brought up in the New Forest, England and have been painting and drawing ever since I could pick up a brush or pencil as a toddler. It has always been a hobby but I have now been painting professionally for a few years and have just started a Foundation Year in Art and am loving the challenges it provides me with. I have exhibited in London at the Menier Gallery and the Brompton Oratory, in Warsaw, Poland and in the New Forest. I will be involved in the Art For Youth exhibition at the Mall Galleries in October 2006. I have just completed an official portrait of the late, great Blues legend, Tommy Johnson for the Tommy Johnson Foundation.
