A little About Myself
I grew up on Teesside and each summer spent months on my Mothers family farm. My work has increasingly focused on the Teesside of my childhood and the contrasting Yorkshire uplands. I love Border Collies and our family dogs Belle and Jess appear in my Yorkshire paintings replaying the antics of the farm dogs that I knew. The Teesside Gadgies are characters I saw around the area against the backdrop of a disappearing industrial landscape. The Ayresome Park paintings are my recollections of a great football ground that was the heart of Middlesbrough.
I studied at Cleveland Art College and Sunderland University. In my early career I focused on sculpture as well as painting. I completed many large commissions for both private and public organisations. My paintings have been shown in many group and solo exhibitions.
Some of my paintings have been chosen to hang in an exhibition at Kirkleatham Hall which will run for the whole of 2019. The exhibition deals with the demise of steel making on Teesside. You can also see paintings in Arthouse at Middlesbrough, Saltburn Framing Gallery and Heather Simone Gallery at Pately bridge
