Artist Biography

I am a Derbyshire based artist and I create artwork inspired by the natural world. I am also the founder of the Rural Urban Art movement. I have a first class degree in Fine Art from Northampton University.Drawing and painting has been a big part of my life since I was young. After  graduating with a 1st class degree in Fine Art, I now teach Art and Design in a secondary school. My sons are both massive animal lovers so I began painting sea life and then that moved onto other forms of wildlife. Sharkmanart came from this creative phase.
