Welcome.

I'm an artist based in South Northamptonshire, England. I paint, draw, and occasionally make art installations.

Here, you'll find an overview of my work, including some from a period years ago just after a segue from creative textile artist to fine artist. In my early forties. Also years ago, I had an opportunity to study art at university level which I grabbed with both hands, finally spending a year in Barcelona gaining an MA with Winchester School of Art.

Before Barcelona I recall how thrilled I was to gain artistic recognition with a substantial financial award from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, an award which helped set up my first independent studio.

Each art piece I make possesses its own voice, capable of resonating without additional commentary. Nevertheless for those who want to know more, I've realized the value of offering insights into an artist's mindset, which can enrich the understanding and appreciation of a work.

On the website, images are primarily presented without adornment, allowing viewers to focus solely on the artwork. However, for those desiring deeper context, supplementary information is readily accessible with a simple click. I trust this arrangement proves beneficial. If you have any questions about a particular piece, I am more than willing to offer insights, as far as I can.

Process

My work reflects the varied experiences that shape my life: reimagined memories, material explorations, abstract interpretations of nature, and occasional narratives or stories. I also draw inspiration from my connections to Wales and Italy. While abstraction is my primary focus, I also enjoy incorporating representational elements, often blending the two to create thematic connections.

My process involves a balance of planning and spontaneity. Some projects require careful consideration and detailed planning, others evolve by being guided by the simple question I ask myself, ‘what if?’ The question fosters a dialogue between me and the materials, the result is each piece embodies the exchange of ideas and inspirations that drive my artistic practice.

Drawing and painting serve as the core of my creative expression.  I don’t plan too much when I paint, thereby allowing the seed of inspiration and question of possibility to have free reign, the artwork gains a voice and the process becomes a dialogue.

The paint, strokes, and colour itself, proffer their own direction and finished work is the manifestation of this ongoing exchange.
