About Me

Unique, beautiful and vibrant still life paintings with a distinctive contemporary style that contrasts traditional subject matter.
I grew up in Lancashire and later went on to study Fine Art at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth graduating in 1997. I now live and work in North Somerset.

I have a distinctive style running through all my work contrasting traditional subject matter with a unique contemporary approach.

My work is inspired by the environment around me. I choose to paint subjects that in shape, form and colour are interesting and beautiful to look at.

I use a combination of acrylic paint and ink to create images that are bold, bright and fresh with a sense of space and simplicity.

I apply paint, colour and detail only to the living/natural elements of the subject. The inanimate parts of the painting are left to a line drawing bringing the subject to the fore. I love the intensity and definition of the line; they are fluid allowing movement in the subject.

My work is exhibited nationally including representation at both London and Bristol Affordable Arts Fairs. My originals are available for sale together with limited edition giclee prints, greetings cards and ceramics pieces.
