I graduated in 1984 with a BA(hons) in Fine Art Printmaking from West Surrey college of art and design. I paint full time from my studios in Hampshire and Cornwall and exhibit throughout the UK. My paintings have been internationally reproduced as greetings cards, posters, calenders, limited edition etchings and fabric designs.
What excites me about making pictures is trying to capture the essence of a place or a thing, I am not worried about visual accuracy. I am attracted to vivid colours and the decorative qualities of everyday objects.
My daily dog walks, holidays and trips to the supermarket provide inspiration. landscapes, new seasons, sometimes just colour combinations and patterns get me going. Fabulous bunches of flowers on a flattened table are frequently all I need and I am regularly buying new mugs and jugs to go into pictures.
I work mainly on wooden panels in acrylic.
Open studios is a good opportunity to visit, view and purchase current and archive work, to contemplate commisions, and meet me. I have lots of cards as well as paintings and some studio bargins all exhibited in an airy conservatory. Please do get in touch to visit at times between those listed, I am usually here. The work is only displayed for the duration of open studios but visitors are welcome at other times by appointment.
