About

 

 

 

 

Originally I went to Chelsea Art School and Ravensbourne School of Art & Design for a Foundation and BA in Fine Art.

More recently the chance of a studio at Ardleigh Studios was irresistible and I was the first in when they opened in November 2015. I began painting again in earnest.

I have just stopped working for the National Trust at Flatford and am taking the plunge into full time studio life. An exciting time for me.

My own work is about the landscapes I walk through on the edge of Constable Country on the Essex/Suffolk borders. Walking and looking often gives me the hook for a painting exploration in the studio.

I try to paint the sense of place or a feeling, if you like. It is not to recreate a representational image of a particular view. My work is as much about the act of painting as it is about looking and drawing outside.
