About Me

I was born in East Anglia on the Essex coast and now live, on the Essex/Suffolk border near Clare. I know the local landscape well and find it a great inspiration for my artwork. Painting and drawing have been my main passion since early childhood.

Painting mainly in watercolours, acrylics and pastels, the subjects I choose are many and varied, from landscapes, boats and seascapes to local historic buildings and animals. I have an acute eye for detail and delight in bringing out the character of my animal subjects.

I have many years of painting experience and am completely self-taught apart from seeking instruction from artists whose work I have admired.

Since 2005 I have been working professionally as an artist, and run art workshops in my local area. These are friendly and informal as I feel that the enjoyment of painting is most important.

I am a committee member of the Suffolk Art Society and Clare Art Club. I am also a member of several other art societies, including the Society of East Anglian Watercolourists, The Saffron Walden Art Society, Suffolk Open Studios www.suffolkopenstudios.co.uk and The Cambridge Drawing Society.
