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 2023 are:

Letchworth Open, Broadway Gallery from August until mid-October

Herts Open Studios at The Settlement, Letchworth from 9-30 September

Winter Exhibition, Weatherley Centre, Biggleswade on 12 November.

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

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