My background is in design and I have lived in Kent for over 25 years. I am married with two young boys and when I’m not painting I enjoy playing the piano and occasionally find time for a quick jog around the block.
I started painting a few years ago, enjoying the freedom of expressing my creativity in a different way, learning new techniques and practices.
Inspired by nature, I am drawn to landscapes, water and interesting skies. I am fascinated by birds and I enjoy experimenting with patterns, textures and layers of colour to add detail, drama and impact to my work.
When painting I work mainly with acrylics, plus a few little extra ingredients if I need a specific effect or finish. With printing I use water based inks with lino, and acrylic or watercolour for monoprinting. I often use hand-cut stencils, masks and stamps to achieve a lot of the textures found in my work.
I work from my studio at home in Kingsnorth and take part in local exhibitions. I am also a regular contributor to the Henley Royal Regatta exhibition each July. If you would like to come along to any of the events I will be attending please contact me for further details.
