  • Biography
    I am a painter and print maker, living and working in London. I am originally from the West Country and visit several times a year to sketch, paint and gather inspiration for future work. 

    I paint in acrylics, oils, inks and watercolours on canvas, board and paper. I create visuals at source, including sketches, colour references and photographs. I bring these into the studio to guide the painting although imagination takes over pretty quickly! 

    My prints draw on various techniques, including monotype, etching, linocut, and collograph, and increasingly a combination of these. I vary each image with hand colouring, collage or simply a different combination of inks. In this way, each print is as original as a painting. 

    I find inspiration everywhere, from the harbours and coastlines of the West Country to the streets, buildings and open spaces in London. It is often the most ordinary of subjects that stimulates my creativity. A simple sketch of a dinghy moored at a marina sparked a number of print treatments, all of them different. I travel with an ipad, sketch book and camera to record images which can inspire a finished work. 

    My paintings are largely figurative whilst my prints can be figurative, semi-abstract or purely abstract. Vibrant colour and texture feature strongly.
