  • Biography

    A picture paints a thousand words - more even!  I use art to explore narrative and what it is to be human and our many connections with each other and with life around us. . I am largely self taught and work mainly with Oils, Acrylics and Watercolours.

    I do not produce prints of my work - each piece is original and unique. I like the idea of people owning original art.

    I have a lifelong interest in art, though my educational background is not in art but in Environmental Science & Anthropology (BSc Hons). Before concentrating on art my working life spanned several industries both in the public & private sector. 

    I always aim for my art to provoke emotion. I am a secular humanist and seek to portray elements of what that means in my art - a sort of secular positivity. I also conduct Humanist ceremonies - for weddings, namings and funerals and offer non-religious pastoral support so do get significant insight into different lives and thoughts from that perspective. 

    Major influences include the art of Munch, Klimt, Waterhouse  amongst others and a significant  influence has been the sculptor Gustav Vigeland following a visit to Oslo in 2014. I love the wide variety of styles evident in modern art from photo realism to abstract work and how they touch us in different ways. I am also fascinated at how different people see differently, think differently, play and react differently.
