I have worked in Ceramics for the last 20 years after studying glass and ceramics at Sunderland University. My work consists of various brightly coloured vessels, bottles and a wide range ofsculptural figurative ceramics, based loosely around the 'head' and 'face'. These pieces are predominantly monochrome. All my work is handbuilt, giving each piece a unique character and presence.
Please take a look around the site. You'll find I've painted custom art for all sorts of homes, children's rooms, schools and businesses throughout Nottingham, Derby and the Midlands. Read some lovelyreviews from previous happy customers, and get in touch to see what I could do for your space!
I studied Fine Art at Luton and Stourbridge from 1968 - 1972. On leaving Art School I worked as a psychiatric nurse until 1987 when I became a full-time artist. From 1987 - 1996 I earned my livingmainly as a Pavement Artist, travelling to towns and cities throughout the country drawing large scale photo-realist portaits of famous faces and people in the news. I now look back on this period as a kind of apprenticeship for the Self Portrait Workshop.
