About the Artist

Born in Barnsley, England in 1968.

Studied printmaking at North Staffordshire Polytechnic from 1988 to 1990 before moving to London via Liverpool.

Formed the band Elevate in 1992 and became favourites of the late, great BBC DJ, John Peel. Released two albums, Bronzee (1994), and The Architect (1996), recorded two Peel Sessions at the BBC (1994 and 1995), as well as several other singles and compilations.

Relocated to New York City in 1999, motivated by the search for inspiration from a new environment.

Re-focussed on painting and the visual arts, worked with Sol Lewitt on a major installation commissioned by the Embassy Suites Hotel in lower Manhattan in 2000. In hindsight, this was a pivotal moment, when I seriously committed to making art.  

Exhibited work numerous times in and around New York City, and also SALT Gallery, Philadelphia, PA, Spring Street Gallery, Saratoga Springs, NY, and The Art Vaults, Shrewsbury, UK. Also completed commissions and projects in London, Dublin, Stockholm, Moscow and Chicago.

Written and recorded four records:

The Billionth Record Ever Made, Townhill Records, 2006

Drawed Sword, Self Released, 2008

Lord Ward, Self Released, 2010

New Album, Currently Unreleased, 2018

Currently living and working in Hastings On Hudson, NY, having recently returned from four years in the UK (2014-2018).
