I am fine art trained in painting and mixed media and take inspiration from my local surroundings. I graduated from the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design in 1996. Following a career in education, I started selling art and exhibiting in 2019 following a move from Birmingham to Pebworth near Stratford. I became a full time artist and tutor in 2020 and have run my art business successfully online throughout the restrictions of the past year.
Process and risk are really important to me and my method (gouache resist technique) is really risky! I create a painting but once it is dry I cover it entirely in indelible Indian Ink and then wash the whole piece with water. The gouache and the ink will stain the paper and leave a unique impression of the original work. I to express the changes in the countryside around me, from season to season and day to night. I love to expand on new techniques and take all I can from a single piece of art by scanning and recording the work in progress.
I work out of my converted stable studio in a small village south of Stratford upon Avon. I open the studio for different events throughout the year and bookings to visit outside of these times can also be made by request through the contact details below.
