I am a North West based prize-winning professional artist, currently exploring the zeitgeist through urban realism and contemporary figurative paintings.
My work has been selected for exhibitions throughout the UK, including the Aesthetica Art Prize, The Castlegate Prize, the Greater Manchester Arts Prize (runner up 2018), The New Light Prize and the ING Discerning Eye. In 2017 and 2019 I was shortlisted for the Artists and Illustrators Artist of the Year Prize and, in 2018, I had a solo show at Warrington Museum & Art Gallery.
Next year, I will be exhibiting in the John Moores Painting Prize at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool (12th February - 27th June 2021).
I am an elected member of the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts (MAFA), the Contemporary British Portrait Painters (the CBPP) and Castlefield Gallery Associates. I take on commissioned portraits and have written a ‘Guide to Commissioning a Portrait’ that I would be happy to send you.
I am represented in Manchester by Saul Hay Gallery, in York by According to McGee and in Stoke-on-Trent by Barewall Gallery.
