I live in East Kent, in a village situated just outside of Canterbury. I work from my studio at home, where I live with my partner Allan, our son Felix, daughter Edie and our two dogs Mabelle and Winston.
From my earliest memory, animals have always been a part of my life. I have spent so much time in their company and as a child I spent a lot of my time studying them without even knowing it! There's so much variation on their different forms, colours and textures. I enjoy the challenge of translating this and their characters and movement into paintings, yet I feel so comfortable with them as my subject.
I like to team my subject matter with colour. I generally use block colour as I like the contrast of this against the subject.
