I live in North West England. I’m a bit of an eclectic when it comes to art.
At school I loved to illustrate my English essays and write stories. My teacher made me cringe from embarrassment when she held up my work.
I was lucky enough to win a scholarship to art school and loved every moment of it.
After receiving an MA in Graphic Design I decided to move to the heady lights of London. During those early days I was flat broke and made endless pots of home-made soup.
For a very short time I trained to become a Chartered accountant and jacked that in when I realised I struggled to balance the books. Then one day I got into computers and never looked back. I spent many years training other professionals in some of the top companies and advertising agencies helping them create magazines, brochures and leaflets.
When I returned to the North West I decided to take a break from training others and spend more time developing my own designs.
Needing to instil a manageable work life balance and address some personal issues I sought help through mindfulness therapy which set me on the road to practising living in the now.
