Spending most of my childhood surreptitiously running wild on the Essex salt marshes my education at that time was erratic. As I began to experience different cultures and environments thru travel, I developed a hunger for the skills needed to create artworks that interpreted my relationship with the environment.

I became a mature student and achieved a National Certificate in Art/Design and Craft at Shetland College. Going on to study in the Hebrides completing the 1st and 2nd year of the BA in fine art with Lews Castle College at Taigh Chearsabhagh North Uist. The environmental focus of the course was inspiring, looking closely at the physical landscape of the island, the use of materials as well as the elements of wind, water, and light, also man’s intervention and place within the environment. Currently studying at Moray College Elgin taking my 3rd year BA in Fine Art.
