I originally qualified in architecture, but my true love lies in painting and drawing. I returned to college as a mature student to complete my training in Art and Design.
I enjoy using inks and reeds, acrylics and mixed media. My inspiration comes from opening my eyes and embracing the creative majesty all around me. I am drawn to empty places - the expansive coast, the rolling hills and the quiet beauty of the Somerset Levels.
I have exhibited in London and locally and hold regular exhibitions of my work in my ‘Old Piggery’ studio/gallery. I have completed a varied range of design commissions including the “Wedmore Map” in the Borough Mall and several of my sketchbooks of the local area have been published.
I delight in helping adults realise their creative potential and teach private drawing and painting courses and lead day workshops to art groups.
