Artist Statement

At my first Art College in Cheltenham, England. the advice my first art teacher gave me came back to me and will never again leave me.

"Keep your sketchbook close and draw what you see everyday."

My work usually starts with looking at things objectively. But then I move into the scene and it surrounds me and that's when it turns into something intensely personal.  That's really the only way I can describe it.

My hope is that I can lead you to see something you didn't see by entering the world as I see it.
