She Loves Me Not. Oil on canvas, 24 x 30 inches. 2009. (The heart-shaped hole in the clown's chest represents a broken heart and I borrowed it from the American artist Tara McPhearson. I did not have permission and I hope she would be ok with that.)

My copy of Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring. Oil on canvas, 18.8 x 15.24 inches (as original). 2011. This painting was well researched as far as Vermeer's technique goes. Sadly I put it into a gallery in Bristol and the manager sold it and kept the money for himself. He is called Steve Eades and he does that to artists sometimes. I happened to find three other artists he ripped off. I beat him in the small claims court and he was ordered to pay me. Sadly as long as he kept ignoring to court there was nothing more I could do. It was a sad lesson into the dishonesty of a minority of gallery owners and the uselessness of the court system for people with little money. Artists of the U.K must beware of Steve Eades, he is a con-man.

About Me:
I started drawing before I went to primary school and have created artworks since. In 1997, when I was 19, I became a student of the Plymouth based painter Robert Lenkiewicz (1941-2002). He taught me a great deal about painting, more than any college or art school I have attended. I have an A-Level in art and a Diploma in Drawing and painting but I don't see these as very important as the work that I do on my own speaks for itself. Qualifications have never meant anything to me, I have known people with degrees in painting who can't paint very well, they have just fulfilled the syllabus on a course. I have never been able to afford to go to university, especially now, and I am glad I didn't as I don't have a debt the size of a mortgage hanging over my head.

I specialize in observational...
