An artist always on the look-out for opportunities and commissions and a life-long lover of drawing. Much of my training has been in the arts, from general art to digital and ceramics, but I mostly draw for the love of it. My specialty is pen & ink and I enjoy keeping sketching journals of my travels. I left full-time work a few years ago to follow my interests. I'm now working part-time doing something I enjoy and I'm able to spend more time with my art. Online and social media are not my natural friends as I'm quite old school.

Previously I've produced work for print, for magazines and for the South Wales Argus, for television (S4C) and have always worked to commission. I'm currently running drawing and sketching workshops at Barnabas Arts Centre in Newport and Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre in Cwmbran.
