"I am a haematology consultant who has a passion for art. Although I did go to art college I'm a predominantly self-taught artist. I exhibit work at a local art gallery, as well as different venues around the west-midlands. I enjoy painting landscapes and animals. I love working with bright and bold colours to make a statement. I work with acrylics and mixed media including sand, glitter and resin. My art is influenced by my surroundings, the climate and seasons with the ever-changing light and colour, most of my work is derived from my Imagination. It has been commented that there is an element of surrealism in some of my work. I also love painting animals bringing them to life."
