I am self taught artist born in 1956 in London and have early memories of having a passion to paint and draw. Since moving to Poole in Dorset I have been inspired by the beautiful coastline through Bournemouth and along the Purbecks. I try to capture the magic of it all in my acrylic paintings.
I also enjoy life drawing and portraits using pastel colours.

I have had various exhibitions in Dorset and was the featured artist at the Passionart Gallery in Bournemouth. Most recently I won a prize at the Poole Open and have been invited by the National Trust to have a solo exhibition on Brownsea Island. For several years running I was invited to give the children of Sylvan Infants School in Parkstone Dorset a demonstration and talk to them about my work. They went on to complete a project based on my paintings of the beach and Old Harry Rocks. I was delighted to see the lovely work they produced.

In 2013 I organized a Pavement Art Day on Poole Quay and it was a great success, with adults and children joining in to cover the pavements with chalk art.

I am happy to take commissions for any ideas you may have. Prices start at £ 75 for a small painting 10in x 8ins. I can paint very small or very large or somewhere in between. If you are interested in discussing a commission or buying a painting please contact me by email.
