Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website.
I'm a British artist, with a studio based in Berkshire. On my site you'll find
examples of my paintings and prints, some of which are available for sale.
Otherwise I exhibit fairly regularly throughout the year,
although this year has been quiet, exhibition-wise. You can check
'What's Happening?' for up-to-date information.
A figurative painter, I work mainly in oils, plein-air whenever possible, as
nothing beats the experience of painting outdoors. I grew up in rural
West Sussex and the South Downs are a favourite subject. 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.
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. I would say, however, that steadily trying to accrue the however-many hours needed (allegedly) to master a skill is the best training of all. I'm not sure where I am to date, but I know there's a long way to go, what a wonderful prospect!
