Working from my studio near Lewes, I paint using India inks inspired by the natural environment that is on my doorstep. Observing the South Downs National Park, local forests and magnificent coastline of Sussex through the changing seasons and in all weathers my aim is to delight the viewer with my interpretations of familiar places, seen again a fresh and in a way that is quite magical.
I studied at Eastbourne College of Art and Illustration (BA Hons) at Brighton Polytechnic (now University) in the late 1980’s. After a break from art career I re-started painting in 2013, joining the Chalk Gallery in 2016 and am currently its Chairperson. As well as being part of the Chalk community, my regularly take part in local exhibitions and art festivals around the South of England.
