Working from my studio in Haywards Heath, I have a lifetime love of colour and print in abundance. I refer to my work as a form of maximalism; it’s full of life, colour and joy.  

Originally from Lewes, I went to art college in Brighton and from there specialised with a degree in printed textiles from Ravensbourne University in the late 1990’s. After graduating I had a rich and varied career in the arts having worked for the likes of Alexander McQueen, Laura Ashley & Duffer of St George. Eventually I went on to form my own award winning design led company 3 Blonde Bears Ltd.

 

Nowadays I am very happy to be a full time artist, fully immersed in my practice and the beauty of living in Sussex. My work explores human relationships with the objects we gather and keep in our homes and the landscapes with live in. I explain these through a variety of mediums, more recently leaning towards mixed media paintings on canvas as well as lino prints on paper. Regularly commissioned for landmark buildings and landscapes, I was recently featured as part of the 2021 Sky Arts programme, Landscape Artist of The Year with my depiction of Newhaven Harbour.
