About me

I grew up in farm life.

It taught me valuable lessons and allowed me to fully relate to nature, which I often combine with gentle humour and palette choices in my work.

My inspirations are rural connection, personalities and nostalgia. Through these threads I enjoy creating my collections any varied commissions. Each and every painting of mine holds its own story.

I paint in oils. Their fluidity and rich colour are extremely freeing. Contrast, play on composition and character have become hallmarks of my work, often sparking intrigue around a subject’s mood or the space around it.

I have held successful exhibitions at the Sock Gallery, Melbourne Art Festivals, Market Bosworth Art Festivals, Rutland Show and Staunton Harold Artisan Shows, alongside many thriving country shows.

Between shows, I teach characterful oil painting, which is fun and rewarding.

In 2021 I instigated Star For Art; a creative confidence project for children that has grown from strength to strength.

I am based in Appleby Magna, within the National Forest. Appleby is on the borders of four counties; Leicestershire, Warwickshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire. 

Thank you for viewing my work.
