I am a self taught artist based in Watford – I currentlly produce two completely different types of artwork.

The first is making pictures in ‘bas relief’ style using polymer clay and painting the finished result with acrylic paint. My ‘coin’ pictures and portraits have the appearance of being made of solid metal and create a unique image. This method involves a number of steps to produce so I also like to use coloured ink on paper to create pictures on a variety of topics – ink has vibrant colours which can really make an image leap out from the paper and has helped me to produce art in a different style of painting which is now recognisable as my own.

Please contact me if you would like to purchase any of my work or to discuss a commission.
