I work in both photography, with an emphasis on street photography, and abstract art, created using digital media, though in the future I intend to produce some of them as limited edition prints.

ABOUT ME

As a photographer, I have exhibited at a number of venues in the United Kingdom, including the University of Cambridge; in 2018 I had a solo exhibition of photographs at the Museu Municipal in Faro, Portugal. As a graphic artist, I am represented in collections of the Australian National Gallery and the British Museum, and my work appears in two books: 'Artists' Postcards: A Compendium' and 'Leeds Postcards'. Currently I am creating abstract artworks using digital media, and intend to produce some of them as limited edition prints.

BIOGRAPHY

I studied Communication Design at the Faculty of Art and Design, North East London Polytechnic (now the University of East London). Following this I studied Education at Garnett College London and the University of Hull. I was a full time lecturer in the further education sector and at a university. I now work independently as a visual artist and writer.
