ARTIST STATEMENT

  • “One day I woke up and thought I’ll draw today… and draw I did; with pen and ink, all day and all night. Couldn’t stop in fact! My head full of characters with cheeky impressions and far away looks.” That’s how it started and I’ve been drawing and creating for clients ever since. 
    My success can be traced back to the Pontins Great Yarmouth Colouring Competition of 1992.
