Generations of brilliant minds and brave souls have accomplished so much - and fought so hard - for their place in the world's great art galleries and countless art books.
I am mindful of this and when the term 'artist' is applied to me I feel uncomfortable. I am lucky enough - at my stage of life - to be following a path I have always wanted to follow.
What being an artist means to me is simple, it means that I have the opportunity to let my thoughts take form and colour. Through this, I can enjoy the work of others and listen to their stories as I attempt to reveal my own.
My past as a televison production buyer allowed me to stray into set dressing and styling and occasional propmaking - and led me on to many projects including working with my old boss at BBC styling events when he used to design The Hay Festival.
In 2012 I began a Foundation Year in Art & Design at Swansea Met and was offered a place to do a degree in Fine Art which I reluctantly declined for personal reasons. I set out to rigorously pursue and develop my own art practice.
