About |

Inspiration and experimentation lead me on new artistic journeys. Along the way, I …
• create expressive contemporary abstract paintings
• draw inspiration from the world around me, and
• recall memories of patterns, emotions and places.

I work intuitively, letting each painting guide its own development exploring colour harmonies with the effects of light, texture and contrasts to create a finished artwork. Recent collections and new series are in the Galleries section of this website.

I take part in various exhibitions throughout the year which are promoted on my website and social media. The current and next events in 2024 are:

Eagle Gallery, St Peters Street, Bedford - Members ‘Drawing’ Show from 6 February-1 March.

The Workhouse Gallery, Dunstable - ‘Winter Sale’ Exhibition until 24 February.

My studio in Fairfield is open to visitors by appointment throughout the year.

My paintings are also on show and for sale at:
  • Artisans in the Yard in Shefford (ongoing)
  • Business Technology Centre in Stevenage (ongoing)
  • Wenta Enterprise Centre in Potters Bar (ongoing)
  • Herts Chamber of Commerce Hatfield (ongoing)
