I was born in Ottery St Mary, Devon in 1963 into an artistic family. Encouraged by my architect father, I completed my Arts degree from Winchester School of Art in 1985.
Since then I have had two solo exhibitions each year and completed many commissions which are in private and public collections in the UK and abroad.
This is the fourteenth year I will take part in Hampshire Open Studios where my studio will be open to the public daily.
My paintings are colourful impressions depicting the local landscape and showing the different light effects produced during the changing seasons.
I work in water colour, acrylic, oil and pastel.
I have studied the figure in depth and have taught life drawing and portraiture at The Tower Arts Centre in Winchester for the past fifteen years. I also run a successful water colour and acrylic painting class there, and offer private tuition.
