I was born on the Isle of Wight and grew up in Yarmouth where I spent an idylic childhood sculling around the harbour, sailing Scows on the River Yar and spending long summer days at Compton Bay playing in the surf. I studed and Bournemouth college of Art and then London College of Printing where I graduated with a BA Hons degree in Graphic Communication. I lived and worked in London as a graphic designer for over 10 years before heading back to the Island to continue working in design, illustration and photography.

Over the last two years I have moved away from illustrative prints and concentrated on original work based around abstracted land and seascapes, shapes and colour.

Love of the water runs deep and I get much of my inspiration sailing in the XOD fleet, crewing with the team on Bandit (JPK 10:10), paddling out to catch a few waves a my home break at Compton or second home in South Devon.

My prints and original work can be seen at my gallery in Cowes - Bath Road Gallery, 2 Bath Road, Cowes, Isle of Wight, P031 7RH - call or email me to check I'm open if your making a special trip 07710 988101 or
