I was born in a small town in the English countryside, surrounded by castles and stone walls. I moved to Canada when I was 9 yrs old. I spent most of my teenage years searching for Catfish and giant Northern Pike in the rivers and lakes of Southern Manitoba. After high school I travelled before settling down for 3 years in art school at the University of Manitoba. After graduation I went on a 7 yr journey to find my home, a place that could inspire without the risk of frostbite. I now live in Port Alberni with my partner in life and art, and our young son. My work is inspired by my surroundings on Vancouver Island. *images are copyrighted and may not be reproduced without the written permission of the artist.
