Following a Foundation course in Art and Design at Leicester Polytechnic in 1983, I completed a BA HONS in Interior Design. I spent 8 years in London and Bath working in commercial and residential design. A move to Devon in 1991 formulated a career change to painting and teaching.
I paint contemporary landscape and seascapes in watercolour, acrylic and mixed media.
My work is exhibited in local galleries, solo and group shows and open studios throughout Devon and Cornwall. For the past 10 years, alongside painting, I have been teaching workshops in watercolour and mixed media with an emphasis on experimentation and mark making. My studio is based close to the River Dart in Totnes, between Dartmoor and the dramatic Devon coast.
