Born in Suffolk, I attended a Foundation course at Gt. Yarmouth where I was awarded the course prize and followed this with a B.A. (Hons) in Fine Art at the Norwich School of Art.
I continue to build up a body of paintings that fulfils along standing vision. My work is continually evolving within the theme. I love the process and the challenge of seeking new ways to express my ideas.
Since childhood, I have spent summer holidays on the Suffolk coast, drawing inspiration for my work from this experience. I feel a tangible infinity with the location and it is the driving force behind my work
I feel passionate about my art work.
I spend hours by the water’s and cliff edge.
I sketch, observe, walk, and take photos for reference and collect found
objects of interest which may be later used in art work.
My studio is an oasis where I can become totally absorbed in the creative
process to develop my ideas.
I use mixed media techniques.
I work on board or canvas in varying sizes and formats.
I use mainly water based paints as a ground.
My contemporary paintings are grouped into themed series.
The themed titles are based on the underlying observed subject matter.
