I am an Artist and Illustrator, living in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, and from the earliest age have always loved drawing, painting and generally just creating.
By far my most favourite style is pen and watercolour, although I am always looking at and trying different ways to compose an illustration or a piece of artwork.
I really love drawing buildings, especially those that have a story behind them. This would usually entail going out to research them or the people/families linked to them.
This inspired me to bring art and friendships together.
‘Your story Illustrated’ is a very special style of my work, illustrating important, memorable and special places to create a treasured, unique and original commissioned piece of personalised art.
I hope you enjoy your visit and don't forget to look me up on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram....

"Due to Covid-19 we can’t hold our usual exhibition and sale this year so we have decided to continue to support not only our acclaimed artists and sculptors but also our three mental health charities: Sevenoaks Mencap, Rethink Mental Illness and The Friends of Dartford Road (previously MacIntyre), by moving our exhibition to a virtual forum.
Do look at our “Charities” page for more information on these incredible charities."

These artworks are my primary interest and consist of a pen and watercolour illustration, based on a persons own experiences or cherished memories.
If you provide me with the memories, I will then translate them into a unique "Illustrated Story". This is a true one-off piece of artwork, designed by you and intended for that someone special.

If you have something in mind, a certain image, a certain style, then bring those ideas with you (or just drop me an email) and I will be happy to talk through them with the aim of creating something special for you.
If you would like to get in contact with me then the best way initialy is via an email; which are checked regularly throughout the day.
