I am a self taught working artist. Drawing and painting is part of who I am. It is how I respond to my world. I am driven by mood and intuition. I always begin outside- in that sense I am a landscape painter. Seasonal changes catch my attention and I can rarely resist the changing colours and textures of the natural year. I sketch and paint in charcoal, watercolour or oil and then return to my studio where I make larger mixed media pieces guided by memory and feeling. Work gets cut down, torn up, collaged and reformed. Fragments of self portraits and other work lay hidden in fields, branches or buildings.

I was born in East London in 1962 and moved to Shaftesbury in North Dorset in 1995 where I currently live and work.

Please have a look around my site and contact me if you would like to discuss availability or anything else.
