I left UWE with a BA hons in Fine Art making sculptures out of ceramics, wool, tar, glass, wood and steel, but have spent the years since painting. I worked in animation and later qualified as a teacher with a PGCE from Westminster College / Oxford University and live and work in Twickenham, South West London.
I specialise in oil and mixed media on canvas and take inspiration from the local area, and enjoy re-creating the plants and wildlife I find in Bushy and Richmond Park or along the Thames riverside. I have been very influenced by art and design from the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s and collect ceramics from this period. Recently, I have moved away from the spaces of my childhood in my work, and am exploring coastal areas we spend time in as a family. I have exhibited my work regionally and in France and sell through art fairs and by commission.
I offer creative workshops in painting, printing, ceramics, textiles and sculpture to adults, teens and children. I teach in schools, colleges, museums, galleries and from home and run courses in all aspects for Art and Design. I also do 1-2-1’s with students wanting to refresh a portfolio. I am pleased to have helped students improve their work and to achieve better grades in their studies at all levels. I have an up-to-date DBS / CRB. Please use the Contacts page to get in touch.
