Being a shy child with a big imagination, I suppose I was always going to be drawn to expressing myself through non-verbal means.
I loved art lessons throughout school and eventually gained both O Level and CSE qualifications in the subject. I continued my artistic education, having a ball being a student for the next four years.
In this time I gained a BTEC National Diploma in Graphic Design, and an Art A from New College, Durham, followed by a BTEC HND in Visual Communications, specialising in Illustration, from Cleveland College of Art and Design in Middlesbrough. I have worked as a freelance artist since leaving college in 1989.
I live and work in County Durham in the North East of England with my partner, Songwriter and Musician Gary Miller.
