I was creative from a young age, if there was paper and a pencil laying around I would be scribbling on it, or making something out of boxes, and as I grew Art become my favourite subject at school, though once I left school I pursued other hobbies, mainly horse riding, as long as I can remember Ive always been an animal lover, always wanting to go and 'stroke the dog ' or pleading with my parents every Christmas for a pony, though the dream of owning my own horse never came until I was in my mid 20's.

My own animals have had their fur and hair snipped to use in some of my samples much to their disgust, but at least I have a reminder of them all.
Im now living back in my home town of Nottingham after 12 years in Spain, and I sell my portraits and jewellery Worldwide
