'My research is based around painting sporting events, I became the second person after L.S.Lowry to win the football and the fine arts prize in 2007 for my painting - The Final Whistle.

I have recently been the artist in residence at Manchester City football club where I documented the match day experience at the club through the medium of painting, this culminated in a show of paintings at the Manchester City Museum, the paintings are now on show at the National Football museum.

Continuing my sport related art I also documented one of boxer Ricky Hatton's last fights before retiring'.
