I am an Art teacher, shortlisted Royal Academy artist and author of debut novel available to order now, 'A Blindefellows Chronicle' published by Unbound. I've lived and worked in six countries so far, Egypt being my favourite. In addition to commissions, I devote a lot of time to charity projects which suits my philanthropic nature. I was the artist of Dame Jane Goodall's 80th birthday portrait and I've donated artwork to the Great Ormond Street Hospital, South Yorkshire's animal charity, Rain Rescue. As for commissions, I've done everything from a dog wearing a jumper with pompoms to a thoroughbred Arab mare racehorse.
