After graduating in Modern Languages from Oxford University, I studied Objective Life Drawing and Painting at the Slade School of Art and Anatomy at the Princes Drawing School. Subsequently, I took classes in Portraiture and Expressive Life Drawing with tutors from the Royal Academy and Royal College of Art respectively. After living in Madrid for four years – where I obtained a Diploma in Painting Processes and Techniques at San Fernando Arts Academy - I have returned to London where I now have my studio.
I have work in private collections in the UK, Spain, Italy and Greece.
