Contemporary artist

I graduated with a BA in Fine Art at Central St Martins and studied Photography and Multimedia at the University of Westminster.

I started as a painter, working mainly with pigments on a large scale to explore ‘structures’ physically and metaphorically.  I continued to explore this theme through photography, gradually merging and blurring the two mediums.

I find the challenge of combining the immediacy of photography with the evolutionary process of painting inspiring and stimulating.


Through mixed media, I explore digitally manipulated imagery as an iterative process of constructing and deconstructing images. 

I combine a variety of media such as oil paints, photography and digital work and  produce originals as well as limited edition prints (Up to 20 editions).

As well as mixed media, I work with oils and pigments. My recent paintings are inspired by seascapes throughout the Essex,  Suffolk and Cornish Coasts.  I have endeavoured to capture the changing impact of light and weather conditions across the landscape. My interpretations are abstract constructions based on combinations of visual and imaginary scenes.

I have exhibited in galleries across London (Tobacco Dock, Lauderdale House) and Colchester (Colchester Art Society, The Minories and Firstsite Galleries) Harwich (Essex Summer of Art) Mersea Island (Mersea Gallery, The Barn, Oyster Gallery) Aldeburgh, Art for Cure - FEAST Exhibition at The Ballroom Arts gallery and Wivenhoe, The Sentinel Gallery.


I work on commissions for corporate and private collections.


I am also an experienced art educator having taught and managed a range of Creative Industries programmes in Further Education over 20 years
