Lives in Guernsey, Channel Island, studied at London College of Printing, Sir John Cass School of Art and Camberwell.

"I enjoy looking at the edgy side of life and presenting it in a sweet pastoral style. Life is all about light and dark, goodness and antagonisms - the survival instinct at its most basic and living in a small island full of folklore stories has always been a great source of inspiration to me, 'les sorciers blancs et les sorciers neiges' are the two opposing life forces always present in the myths.

An island after all is a microcosm of the bigger world we all inhabit, the emotions, problems and dilemmas we all encounter along the way are common to us all and the inner striving for perfection goes on unabated whether we like it or not.

It is perhaps this abstract nature to life that we all find the most difficult to balance, it is definitely the most difficult to successfully convey in a piece of art".
