About

My art career began in the early 80s when I completed a BA Honours Degree in Fine Art Painting at Cheltenham School of Art. This was followed by a two year Masters Degree in Printmaking at The University of Brighton where I specialised in Relief printing and Screen printing. Since then I have worked as a painter and printmaker, often working in mixed media.

My work is inspired by the natural world particularly the Sussex landscape and my tropical water garden in the village of Chailey. I am fascinated by ever changing natural forms and colour and the seasonal cycles of nature. Along with the visual aspect of the natural environment I try to convey my own personal relationship to it and how it affects me on a daily basis. As a result the imagery often incorporates a mixture of visual languages to represent different aspects of the subject. Another enduring influence is the Greek island of Aegina where I lived for 13 years and visit regularly. My passion for all things Greek often appears in my work and I am interested in Greek mythology which I sometimes use as a vehicle for expressing various themes in a more contemporary setting. 

I have work in many private collections and am happy to discuss potential commissions.
