By day I'm a Gallery Manager & Partner at "The Connection Gallery" in Thirsk, North Yorkshire which is the regions only artist owned Abstract Art Gallery and here you will also find my photography! In the evening I'm a mobile Barber and at night I do photography.... I'm quite an active person in Thirsk, as well as running a Gallery, I'm a Councillor at Thirsk Town, committee member for the annually 'Festival on The Flatts' (my role is Social Media) I run & manage various local FaceBook pages promoting Thirsk and the Arts of Hambleton District. I was recently nominated for an award by Hambleton District Council and won Hambleton Champion 2018 :)
On an evening I'm a part-time mobile barber and have a loyal customer base, I see it as a social event rather than working, have a cuppa and a bit of banter whilst providing a professional service.
Photography time is limited and when I get out there - it's a great rush!! When behind the lens of the camera I'm suddenly transported into a world of my own loosing all track of time!
Another passion of mine - "Driving!" Absolutely love it!! This is fulfilled daily.... My drive to Thirsk for the Gallery, the drive to my clients and then the best drive of all is when I go out to somewhere and nowhere for photography.... Majority of the time I do not plan - I just end up there!
I have two very adorable cats and one very patient, understanding and extremely supportive partner of 27 years. Love Life! :)
