Hi, thanks for taking the time to visit my site. I hope you enjoy browsing my creations.
I create colourful, contemporary acrylic paintings from my garden studio. I am a self taught artist and have lived in Surrey all of my life. I love nature and am continually inspired by all manner of natural beauty, especially during the spring. I particularly love the sky and constantly gaze at sunsets. My art often stems from the sun and the incredible feeling of warmth & security it gives me. When I start to paint I have an image in my mind, I can feel the sun beating down, often the flowers are reaching up towards it, vying for its attention. The piece doesn't always end up as I imagine it but always the feelings I aim to create are there.
With my Poppy Series I wanted to create a collection of paintings that would fuel the emotions of all ages, young and old. I was hugely moved by the installation of poppies at the Tower of London commemorating the centenary of WW1 in 2014. You can read and see more about the poppy installation here. I am incredibly proud that two of these pieces have been purchased and are inset at The Poppy Factory, Richmond, Surrey.
As 2018 is the centenary year of the end of WW1, I have painted a new painting, Remembrance. I have had this printed and framed so it is affordable to more. To view and order your own signed print go to my 'Shop' page.
I show my work several times throughout the year, mainly in Surrey, and details of these exhibitions will be on the News & Events page. If you would like to visit my studio at home to view anything don't hesitate to ask.
I really hope you enjoy looking through the site, if you have any questions or would like to discuss a commission don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss your ideas. No question is too much trouble so ask away!
