Current Residence: Sunny Surrey
I am a fantasy, creative portraiture and stained glass artist although I love working in a range of other media too. I paint and draw commissions, generally portraits sometimes with a fantasy setting or theme. I also get commissions to create stained glass windows - the discipline in which I professionally trained.
Personal Quote: There is always room for a Cornish pasty
