I am an Artist living and working in Brighton. Originally from Derbyshire and I studied Fine Art at Manchester Polytechnic from 1987-1990. I specialised in painting, drawing inspiration
from my own environment, predominantly domestic, but also the landscape.
I am a collector of things, and have many objects that have significant sentimental value to me. They hold memories and by nature I am a very nostalgic person. The idea of
environment and home and the comfort of that space is important to me. And the objects in it have personal value, more than monetary.
Charity shop finds and car boot sale purchases, flowers out of the garden, collected and inherited things all make it into my paintings which are about colour, shape, a collection of
objects that does not obviously connect in any way, the joy in the pattern on a mug, the shape of a bowl and the simple things in life that we are all so familiar with and that is in all
of our homes.
