Contemporary mixed media painter and lover of colour, light and atmosphere.
Life has changed from being an Art Educator in Gloucestershire and Bristol to living and painting in this wonderful part of the country. The South Hams – Torcross especially, has inspired me since I was a small child. In turn, I have always loved to inspire my students and others who view my work to experience and feel their own response.
I studied Art and Drama at Nottingham University and completed an Art Postgraduate course in Brighton after travelling in New Zealand, Australia and south East Asia.
I have always loved being by (and in) the sea, by mountains and wild, out the way places. My more recent travels have taken me to Spain, Catalunya, Wales, Denmark, the Forest of Dean and Lanzarote where I have completed commissions and exhibited.
I have a love of Turner, Monet, Howard Hodgkin, Twombly and my own artwork can sometimes encompass them all however will always be personal to my style and ethos. I love to paint memories however trivial and to tell a story of a time or a moment, working from my own collections of sketches and photographs.
I have completed number of private collaborative commissions, including one in Barcelona alongside a Feng Shui master.
