I was born in 1969, the youngest of five children and grew up on a council estate in Leicester. It was a happy childhood. From an early age I was able to draw.My mother and father were both creative people but in other trades. My mother was a hairdresser. She had a strong visual ability that allowed her to foresee how something should look before starting the task in hand; an essential pre-requisite for any artist. My father built models for a hobby. Endless hours in his shed making anything from boats and planes to landscapes and houses. He was more of a dreamer and I think this is of course something that I also have in me.
Once I graduated in ‘Illustration’ at Art College I worked for various art galleries. I then turned professional in 1996 and have achieved much success since then. I was awarded ‘Best Up and Coming Artist’ in 1999, ‘Best Selling Artist in the UK’ in 2000 and have been nominated three times for ‘Best Published Artist’ in 2001, 2002 Read More
