When I was eight years old I sold my first set of portraits: felt tip drawings on 130 mg cartridge paper. Today I am licensing my photo realist art work, entering Art competitions, teaching Art and exhibiting at the Autumn fair Trade Show.
I use many different mediums, such as acrylics, water colours and pastels. The Mother & Child is my iconic image and was my first attempt with soft pastels in 1994. The United Petdom Collection has been created with my favourite medium soft pastels.
I enjoy walks in nature and studying wildlife. My inspiration for my current art and design collection is summed up with this motto:
Real pets, real art, United Petdom brand .
Skye the Puppy lives on a farm in Ayrshire, Scotland. Derek the dog is a springbat from Northamptonshire and Mac the cat is a house cat from Bridgend, Wales. I am still on the lookout for a real pet from Ireland for a complete wall art set .
This is Momma: Florence Mavour, my great Grandmother, born in Jamaica around 1895. I painted 'Momma' (2014) onto canvas using acrylics and soft pastels. I have discovered through maternal DNA tests that I am: 1% Swedish, 30% Benin /Toga, 1% Irish and Welsh, 1% Assyrian. In short: 'all things to all men'.
