Biography

I am a painter and printmaker working from a studio at my home on the North Downs on the southern outskirts of London. I also regularly work elsewhere alongside fellow-artists, including at en-plein-air locations. Oils and watercolour are my favoured painting media and I use a wide variety of drawing methods. For subject matter, I concentrate mainly on people, portraits and landscapes. I make my etchings and drypoints in the workshop at The Heatherley School of Fine Art in Chelsea which has an access facility for printmakers, but also am fortunate to have a lithographic press in my own studio. My work has appeared in national exhibitions including the Royal Watercolour Society's Contemporary Watercolour 2017 and the University of Cambridge Summer Open 2019.
