About |

Inspiration leads me on new artistic journeys.

Along the way, I …
• enjoy creating expressive contemporary abstract paintings
• draw inspiration from the world around me - and within me
• recall memories of patterns or emotions, and
• respond to what happens in my painting

My moments of joy in the creative process come from …
• exploring the effects of light on colour, line and shape,
• playing with contrasts in the marks, textures and colours

Recent collections and new series are in Galleries on this site.

My paintings are on show and for sale at:
• Herts Chamber of Commerce in Hatfield
• Artisans in the Yard in Shefford
• Business Technology Centre in Stevenage
• Wenta Enterprise Centre in Potters Bar, and
• Hitchin Art Hub.

I take part in various exhibitions throughout the year which are promoted on my website and social media. My studio in Fairfield is open to visitors by appointment.
