" I am a self-taught artist from the (love)heart of Somerset.

I grew up in a red house on a hill & it were all green fields

round there. I spent much of my spare time drawing & writing, which started by copying animals & famous people from encyclopedias, writing my own "choose your own adventure" books. I used to make cards & wrap them in cling film to

make them look professional & try to sell them to my

Mum & Dad's friends for 20p.


I often wrote plays & my lovely neighbour Nora would come & watch them, stories of magical children lost in a forest.


I was very inspired as a child by the walks my father took us on, to woodland & wasteland. I had quite mystical experiences by stumbling upon graffiti on an abandoned railway track, how incredible to see Vaughn Bode creatures bigger than me, in pink & yellow on old walls & Marylin Monroe the side of a whole railway building.

I seek now to convey this sense of awe of the natural world conjunct art. the naive & unexpecting, unanalysing eyes of a child coming alive with colour."
