Painting has always been something that I love to do. As a small child when asked I would say I wanted to be an artist when I grew up. I grew up near Leeds, and I went to York College to do a Foundation Course in Art & Design and then on to Manchester Polytechnic (BA Hons Fine Art) in 1991. At the time I did conceptual art but I still used my painting skills in it. After graduating I then had to make a decision to either move to London to do the conceptual work or do something else. The city is not for me so I did the opposite. I went to live in the Yorkshire Dales. I was intrigued and inspired by the area and I created landscapes to sell at local fairs at events in York. Things grew from there and in time I was doing solo shows at National Trust properties and Bowes Museum. I now live and work in the North York Moors National Park and continue to develop my landscape painting originals. Each time I finish a new one it is added on here Etsy. This is my gallery space now - and the prints are only available from me directly on Etsy.
