Originally trained in San Francisco, I worked professionally as an illustrator for 5 years. Following this, I moved to Europe, studying painting first in France, then completing an MA in Fine Art in London in 2001. Since this time my practice has evolved, gradually resuscitating earlier skills as a draftsman to the more impulsive, expressive skills of a painter. In 2000 I co-founded and organised an Association (Axis Mondi) that promoted international exhibitions between artists from Europe and the United States during 2000 and 2004. I maintain a studio in East London and have participated in solo and group exhibitions both in London and abroad.
