All about me

I am a professional artist working in oil on canvas and board.
My work has been exhibited in the RA Summer Exhibition, The Mall Galleries and countless other exhibitions.
My paintings are held in private collections around the world.

Having been primarily interested in portraiture for many years, in September 2020 I set myself the challenge of painting one small painting a day alongside my portrait commissions. As I've always loved birds, 'A Bird a Day' was an obvious choice.
My growing aviary has now blossomed into an Etsy shop.


About my work-
I was delighted that my two portraits of Ugandan artist, Ludigo were selected and exhibited in London- the first at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2107
and the second - 'Ludigo's Stories, Time will tell' at the
​ 2018 Columbia Threadneedle Prize Exhibition at the Mall Galleries.
(see events page for the story behind the portrait)

My portrait exhibition - FACE to FACE, celebrating people with profound and multiple disabilities, was featured on the
​ BBC South Today news.
You can view the film on my Face Book page. See link below.

I exhibit my work regularly in both solo and group exhibitions and am also a member of Surrey Artists Open Studios- and as such take part in their annual open studios event in June.
