I was born in Eastbourne, Sussex and have painted ever since I can remember. I trained in Illustration at Bournemouth College of Art and shortly after moved to London where I worked for publishers and designers. I was commissioned to illustrate books and magazines, greetings cards, advertisements and packaging. I started to exhibit paintings from travels in India and the Med and won the Art for Youth prize in 1994. I was part of a cooperative gallery Skylark in Gabriels Wharf on the South Bank. My work has been exhibited around London and the UK, the US and Greece and is in private collections worldwide. I am inspired by nature, the seaside and cats and enjoy using different mediums including watercolour, oils, acrylics and lino printmaking. I like to visit Greece and paint the stunning scenery and colours there. Currently showing at Bury Art Museum, Eastbourne Hospital and Art for Youth London and participating in the forthcoming Christmas show at Ashdown Gallery in Forest Row.
In my spare time I enjoy yoga, cinema, reading, cooking and swimming.
