I am a member of ArtCan and of the VAA and an associate member of the Society of East Anglian Watercolourists.
Me & My Work
My work explores the cycles of the natural world, in particular letting go and regeneration, abundance and decay.
From the streets of South London to Suffolk’s ancient oaks, I am drawn to trees and their secret language. I am interested in their in combating climate change.
Fibromyalgia gives me an acute sensitivity to external stimuli, which allows me to pick up the nuances of my surroundings.
My work invites your into a world that is both familiar and strange through the use of colours, mark making and perspective.
I paint in watercolour, acrylic and digital media. Using different techniques allows me to express varying moods and ideas.
Although I identify in the tradition of the outsider artist, I was brought up in a house of colour and design, and have always thought in pictures. My grandfather was a Hungarian watercolourist.
After decades of ineffective treatment, unemployment and depression, I began painting in 2018 to distract myself from the chronic pain of fibromyalgia. I quickly reconnected with a childhood love of the visual arts.
In 2021, I was selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and took part in a BBC2 documentary about the exhibition. I have participated in numerous art fairs and group shows, as well as organising Open Studio events in my home. My first gallery show was held in 2022. Called ‘Walking with Trees’, it celebrated the benefits of being in nature.
Saltaire Arts Trail, May
During the late spring bank holiday I took part in the Saltaire Open Village Arts Trail. I had a wonderful time, meeting new collectors and other artists, and seeing the beautiful village. I also took the opportunity to visit Salts Mill, and see the iPad paintings of David Hockney.
I was amazingly honoured that Saltaire Inspired selected one of my pictures to be on the front cover of the Trail guide.

Chatting with one of the trustees of Saltaire Inspired
Encouraged by the positive response to my iPad artwork, I have decided to create limited editions. It's something I've been thinking about for a while but have not had time to do much about. I have previously created some test prints, but I will be launching a couple of luxury limited editions in the autumn.
If you love my iPad painting, you may be interested to find out more about the process of creating limited editions.

Another satisfied customer!
I love painting commissions and this was a particularly important one for me, and a challenge. I was asked to create a colourful skyscape inspired by the work of Turner – no pressure then!

One of my paintings is on display as part of the Ensemble 2 exhibition organised by ArtCan in association with Kroll, in their offices in the centre of Paris.
This is part of Kroll's corporate and social responsibility programme, giving emerging artists an opportunity to show their work and providing staff and visitors with engaging artwork.
This exhibition is open to the public by arrangement.
Lighthouse Dental Practice Ipswich
I am working with the Lighthouse Dental Practice in Ipswich which displays my art in their waiting room. The idea was conceived by the manager of the practice as a way of creating an environment to promote well-being for patients awaiting treatment, and to support local artists.

Advice on displaying & caring for your art
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.
Did you know I can advise and help find the perfect mount and frame your work?
My Royal Academy adventure in 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.
