I studied at the London College of Printing and practiced as a graphic designer, working in advertising and publishing.
Enrolling as a mature student I graduated in 1994 from West Surrey College of Art and Design with a BA (Hons) degree in fine art.
Painting and printmaking has now become my full time occupation,
specialising in landscape and figurative painting,
exhibiting frequently in London and the Home Counties.
My current paintings, have as their inspiration the Prairie or New Wave
Design for contemporary gardens.
This theme is taken from nature using drifts of perennial plants and grasses
utilizing repetition and linkage.
The paintings have a low visual point and flat perspective, your eye is directed from the foreground into the painting by using linear and gestural marks, colour, texture and aspects of abstraction.
