I am a painter and print maker, living and working in south west London. I completed a degree in French and Fine Art at the University of Exeter, where I specialised in painting. I developed my print making skills at The City Lit and Morley College in London and also attended courses in stained glass making and sculpture.
I have exhibited at Panter & Hall gallery, Webbs Road gallery, Putney Arts Theatre, Urban Art Fair and a number of artists' open houses. I have been selected for the Pastel Society Annual Exhibition 2020 and several Chelsea Art Society Annual Exhibitions. In 2017 I won the Jacksons Pastel Landscapes competition. I have also completed several private commissions and have work hanging in homes around the UK and abroad.
I find inspiration everywhere, from the simplest dinghy moored at Weymouth marina to the bustling market near my home in London. Usually I paint en plein air, working directly from the subject, but I also work up studies back in the studio. I usually paint with oils or soft pastels but I also use acrylics, gouache and watercolour.
My paintings are largely figurative whilst my prints allow me to push my creative boundaries and may be figurative, semi-abstract or purely abstract. Vibrant colour and texture feature strongly.
