Born in London in the 60's, I moved to Sussex as a teenager where I trained in Graphic Design which has definitely shaped the way I paint. I'm a no nonsense painter.
My first solo exhibition was in 2000 and I continue to paint for exhibition and commission, constantly developing new styles and techniques and have work in private collections across Europe and in New York. I tutor in various styles and media, give demonstrations to Art Groups throughout the South East, run my own classes and courses and am one of the resident artists at Gallery North in Hailsham.
Dominant themes in my work are movement, colour and light. Portraying animals is one of my specialities and I accept commissions for pet portraits. The main driving force behind all of my art is simply to make the viewer smile.
