Drawer and printmaker  |  Visit Open Studio

I enjoy the spontaneity of drawing nature from life and communicating a sense of place. I only feel that I fully understand something if I have drawn it. I love the sound of a pencil leaving a mark, varying its pressure, looking carefully at what I am drawing while the work evolves upon the paper. I use a variety of materials including graphite, pen & ink, paint, charcoal gold/silver leaf upon paper and board.# I studied at Chelsea School of Art, London College of Fashion and Sir John Cass Art School. My artwork has been shown at the Affordable Art Fair, Christies London and included in several group exhibitions at the Mall Galleries London. To date I have had five solo shows, the most recent was held at the end of a residency at North London Collegiate School. I completed a Fellowship with Ballinglen Arts Foundation, County Mayo, Ireland in March 2016. I was invited to create a series of work inspired by the garden of the British Embassy in Kuwait. This culminated in a sell out exhibition in 2020. I exhibit regularly with the Society of Graphic Fine Art, teach and am creating a new body of work.
