I was born and raised in Penkridge a little village in the midlands. I moved to Bristol to study for my BA in Illustration at the University of the West of England, and decided I liked the city so much that I'd stay. While growing up I spent much of my time playing in the mud with my plastic dinosaurs, reading about dinosaurs or happily painting pictures of dinosaurs. I quite like dinosaurs. Drawing and painting has always been my passion which is evident from my studio which is covered in paintings, drawings and scribbles, anything and everything that inspires me is either pinned up on the walls or laid out on my desk, including more than a few plastic dinosaurs.
