Largely a self taught artist, I left school to train and work in the jewellery trade, based in Birmingham UK. For a few years I helped run a small jewellery and watch repairs office, where I also designed jewellery and was trophy co-ordinator for the British Show Jumping Association.
With a lifelong love of art and crafts, I've made jewellery and created artwork of various medium since childhood, taking commission work largely for watercolour pet portraits, pencil work and sculptures. I've also spent many years operating a sideline business baking and decorating award winning celebration and novelty cakes and the odd chocolate truffle!
Disability now prevents artwork on a full time professional scale and I now work part time as an artist and freelance illustrator but I still have a deep interest in all things creative and current hobbies include Altered Art, working in mixed medium and PMC. I am the creator of 'The World of Tatty Button' a range of craft products produced by Creative Expressions and available from various craft retailers.
Outside of art my other interests among many things include gardening and growing veg in my small garden, wildlife conservation, and watching sports. I'm an avid supporter of the Worcester Warriors (Rugby Union Club) and can be found travelling the length and breadth of England watching them play away, and at their home Sixways Stadium in Worcester.
I currently live in the West Midlands with my partner.
