"I'm a self taught artist from Nottinghamshire and have been drawing since childhood. My art has won many competitions since then and I feel privileged to be showing you my work today. I take my inspiration from Max Ernst and Salvador Dali."

"I was born in the ancient city of Worcester and I live in a small village called Blidworth, which is situated about 5 miles outside Mansfield Nottinghamshire. I went to Rushcliffe Comprehensive in west Bridgeford Nottingham.

As I have grown older my drawings have become more diverse and now include a variety of surreal figures and scenes alike. I have a very vivid and extended imagination, this helps me to create very descriptive pictures time over with dramatic effects.

My drawings are often quite asymmetrical with geometric focal points and negative spaces some include strange quirky objects and amusing creatures. I want my art to entice the viewer by skilfully arousing the eyes and the imagination to draw them in keeping them focused not only on the main images but towards the smaller hidden images within that make the picture come to life and give it depth.

It has taken me over 25 years as a self-taught artist to produce the work you see before you today and I feel my artwork is one of a kind and unlike any other seen. It is my hope that one day my goal of becoming a recognized artist will flourish.”
