Artist's description

New to the Brighton art scene, I've been a dabbler for years.

I've drawn pen & ink illustrations for local CICs, small businesses and community events.

In addition to drawings, I also create tiny models in polymer clay and have recently started experimenting with ceramics.

Much of my inspiration comes from childhood stories and Aesop's fables. I am a firm believer in the power of metaphor and imagery to convey complex and abstract concepts.

My work has been described as 'intricate' and 'detailed' and occasionally has an edge of dark humour to it.

My agent is a very friendly cat who comes with me a lot of the time and handles the people-skills part of my life. If you'd prefer me to leave him at home, please let me know.
