Me & My Work
My work is a joyful celebration of the everyday beauty I find around me. To find out what motivates me, and how I started painting read my story.
If you are interested to see my Statement artwork, some of which is out in exhibitions, take a look at my Signature Portfolio
I am very happy that both my mini pictures that were part of the ArtCan fundraising event 'From ArtCan with Love' were sold, and have raised some money for this wonderful non-profit organisation to which I belong.

Painting at the Wetland Centre
I was delighted to take part in a day of painting at the Wetland Centre in Barnes on Sunday 12th June. This was organised by Arts Richmond along the lines of the popular Sky television programme, Landscape Artist of the Year.
You can see the 2 paintings I made, along with other artists' work from the day in an exhibition at the Wetland Centre which is on NOW.

You can catch some of my paintings from the "Walking with Trees" exhibition at the Market Cross Gallery in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk
The Market Cross is an amazing heritage building right in the centre of Bury St Edmunds. Find out more about how this beautiful building is being brought back to life for the town, including its art gallery here
Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, 2021
I was so excited when my painting, "Corona Panic in Sutherland Grove" was shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
Little did I know that that was just the start of my adventures.
Read about how I came to make the painting, and my experience of being shortlisted, then selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, and being involved with a television programme about it.

Every month I use a random generator to select somebody from my mailing list to win a prize
The April prize winner said, "I am so pleased to have won your prize draw, it has really made my day!"
When I first started painting I had very little understanding of how to care for all display pictures, whether originals or prints. I have collated what I have learnt into a handy hints and tips section.
If you have any advice and tips of your own that you would like to share, I am happy to include them in this!
