Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website.
I'm a British artist, with a studio based in Berkshire. Following a
London-based career in publishing, in 2010 I gained a Fine Art degree
from The University of Reading and a PGCE in Secondary Art and Design.
Last year I was a finalist in Sky Landscape Artist of the Year.
I hesitate to say that my work is inspired by any one thing, because I love
the fact that anything can capture your imagination if you are open to it.
The artistic journey is a constantly evolving one, and is full of
experimentation and exploration. Hopefully my paintings and prints track
this path and I hope that others will enjoy the record.
I work mainly in oils, plein-air whenever possible, as nothing beats the
experience of painting outdoors. I walk every day with my dogs, and
always have my pocket sketchbook and phone camera with me for
when inspiration strikes.
I also enjoy screen and lino-printing. With the printmaking process there is time to experiment and opportunities for combining techniques and introducing other media, so there is always an element of surprise - which can be stimulating and frustrating in equal measure!
Running occasional workshops gives me the chance to share my love of the creative process with others.
