Welcome to my website
I was born in London. My father was an artist and I have been drawing and painting all my life. I love both landscape and portraiture, for which I take commissions.

For 14 years I lived in Cornwall and enjoyed painting the moody and dramatic landscape. I worked primarily around the Camel Estuary, the coastal scenery of Rock and Padstow, the North Cornish coast and Bodmin Moor.
Following a move to Somerset in 2015, I am enjoying discovering a new landscape around the north and south Devon coasts, the Blackdown Hills, the Quantocks and the Mendips – a new focus on trees, woodland and softer farmland. But I continue and will always continue to go back to Cornwall.
I work mainly in acrylics, which I love for their versatility, on canvas, watercolour paper or board.
My work has been exhibited in many galleries in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Hampshire and Somerset.

I am an Associate Member of the South West Academy.

Please browse my website and do contact me if you would like to buy a picture from the gallery or if you are interested in a commission.
