I was born in London in 1964 and studied at the Royal Academy Schools and Wimbledon School of Art. I have lived in South Devon for many years where I paint and teach part time. I was elected an Associate member of the Royal Watercolour Society in 2018. I am fully qualified to teach in the Lifelong Learning sector and run local painting classes, for details follow the links.
My paintings are a response to the nearby moor, forest and garden with its changing seasons and produce. Working from both observation and intuition, my preferred mediums are watercolour, oil, and egg tempera. I am a former pupil of Norman Adams RA, Timothy Hyman and Prunella Clough.
I have exhibited in London, Devon and Cornwall including at the Royal Academy Summer exhibition and was recently shortlisted for the Lynn Painter Stainers prize.
My studio is based at Seale-Hayne, just outside Newton Abbot, Devon. Studio visits welcome by appointment.
