Welcome to my website!
My website is in the process of being updated so there may be a few gaps as I change things around. Thank you for your patience.
I am an artist, gardener and sea swimmer living on Romney Marsh in Kent. I've made art, gardened and swam since I was little.
My work is a personal response to my surroundings: gardens, especially my own and Great Dixter; the beach; outside in nature - my escapes, my havens, my safe places. It's all about light, texture and most of all colour.
All my work is for sale
I accept commissions

Artist support pledgeDuring these difficult times a pledge has been set up as artists (like myself) are struggling as they have lost their teaching, exhibitions, etc. For works £200 and under, this work is sold through this pledge. For every £1000 an artist makes they will spend £200 on another artist's work.
Artist support pledge detailsFor every £1000 made (I can only hope) I promise to spend £200 on another artist's piece of work(s).

With purple hair and flowersI studied painting at Wimbledon School of Art followed by a PGCE at Goldsmiths College specialising in art.
My work is a personal response to my surroundings (both physical and emotional) and in particular with my use of colour. I draw inspiration from the sea and sky, gardenscapes, particularly my favourite garden Great Dixter.
Commissions welcome plus places to exhibit.
My workshops take place all over Romney Marsh and beyond.
I'm happy to come to you to teach...as long as it's not too far away...
