Hi, thanks for your interest.
I paint landscapes that are instantly recognisable but modern and striking in design.
The stripes are painted freehand in acrylics on canvas.
Painting stripes can be intense work and sometimes feel the need to paint in a freestyle.
I love mid century design and am looking to include more of this in my work.
I am self taught due to a genuine love of experimenting with paints and techniques. I grew up by the sea and now live a 5 minute walk away from the beach, so my work is truly inspired by my surroundings. I swim in the sea all year round and it makes me so happy.
I was born in Watford in 1968. Moved to the Isle of Wight in 1979. Started painting in 2000, selling vibrant art to visitors and locals on the Isle of Wight.
Moved to Dorset in 2012. Connections to the Island remained strong and I returned in June 2018.
I have exhibited at Quay Arts, Seaview Gallery and the Aqualibrium Gallery and since moving from the Isle of Wight, have exhibited at Swan Gallery, Frome.
First View Gallery, Stour Head. Cove Gallery, Weymouth. Guggleton Gallery, Stalbridge. Dorset Arts Week. The Crypt, St Ives, Cornwall, Park Gallery, Cheltenham.
I am a member of the National Acrylic Painters Association.
