I was born in Manchester in 1970.
In 1988 I became a picture framer.
In 1997 I set up my own bespoke picture framing business in Cheshire.
I started painting in 2014, doing local landscapes that people could relate to.
As people started seeing my paintings I could see there was an instant likeability to them from the feedback I was getting.
When I paint I like to capture the light in my pictures whether its reflections in the water, or a low sun producing silhouettes against a skyline.
I have no formal training, but I suppose after framing more than 60,000 pictures, I think its starting to rub off on me a bit.
I hope you enjoy my pictures as much as I do in painting them.
