I studied Fine Art / Painting at Nottingham Trent University and graduated in 1996.

After a few years of travelling in India and Mexico, I settled down in the creative seaside town of Brighton, on the south coast of the UK. I had a studio and was part of a studio group called Maze, I exhibited my paintings regularly. In 2002 I exhibited in a group show call 'Housebound' and rather than producing a new painting, I created a screen-printed wallpaper called 'More Tea Vicar'. This was the catalyst for my foray into the world of wallpaper. The following year, I received a loan from the Princes Trust and set up my business in making wallpaper.

I now live and work further along the coast in another creative seaside town; Hastings, with my family. I design wallpaper and fabrics and I still paint. I collaborate with other designers and also teach wallpaper printing in my studio. Over the years, I have worked with Laura Ashley, Paul Smith, Dr Martens, Osborne & Little, V&A Museum and many others. My work is regularly featured in magazines and has been published in several books.
