Upon graduating with a degree in fine art in 2002, I ended up working at and eventually managing an art gallery in Windsor. Whilst working in the gallery every day to pay the bills I painted feverishly every night; all the while harbouring the dream of one day having my work hung on the walls. I was having some small success with my work in local galleries and at the affordable art fair in London. However I was frustrated that things were not happening fast enough, so without the owners consent I took matters into my own hands and one weekend filled the windows of the gallery with my own canvases. By lunchtime of the first day we had sold everything. That was the last weekend I worked in the gallery!

Within a month I was taken on by the UK’s leading fine art publishers and returned to Windsor gallery the following year for my first sell out solo exhibition.
