I live and work in North East London. I have been a practising fine artist for over twenty five years with a long exhibiting history. In 2014 my first book A Toby in the Lane, A History of London’s East End Markets and was published by the History press.
Although I continue to paint and write, in 2015 due to some health issues my main focus of artistic interest switched to a passionate love of street photograpy. Since moving to London in 1992 from the Lake District, I have been fascinated by London’s history and social culture. My photography is based mostly in Soho, Chinatown, Trafalgar Square and Walthamstow.
I have also been commissioned to photograph events for street markets, music gigs and luxury lingerie wear 'Studio Pia' .
