Artist Open Studio

I went to art college and university and graduated in 2003 with a BA(Hons) in Interactive Media Design. I have worked as a web designer since graduating but in 2018 I took up art again after having major brain surgery. I like to experiment with lots of different mediums and subject areas. Some of these include canal art, neurographics, flowers and animals (mostly husky dogs and seahorses!) More recently I have been doing wood related projects using pyrography.

I started painting to help me get through the recovery of major brain surgery. This was to help to control my epileptic seizures. My art is influenced by this experience and therefore helps to tell the story of my journey. I now use my art to help raise awareness of brain surgery for epilepsy.
