Coventry University (BA Hons Fine Art and Media Studies, 2008 , 2011)

I have been painting for several years. I have developed through different interest ranging from images of animals, to portraits to still life and studies of form and tone.

I started to draw and paint what I saw and how I thought it should look. I could use painting as a method of almost controlling what I saw and channelling it into a confined and detailed space that I had full control over.

I completed my studies at A Level, I went on to further education. I was awarded unconditional entry into Coventry Universities School of Fine Art. After completing my studies at Coventry University, and from attending exhibitions ranging from portraiture to landscape and craft I have started to further develop the areas in which I work.

I am now working with colours and light to add a further depth to my paintings. I like to try to have and affect on people’s sensibilities and feelings when they are looking at my work. This can be eliciting an emotional response, getting people talking, or people walking away in disapproval. If I can get even the smallest response form people looking at my work, or indeed any art, I feel this is a positive thing.
