I am a long established artist and tutor working in the South Hams.
I run courses and workshops independently and for local art societies, in watercolour, landscape painting and drawing, portraiture, life drawing and flower painting. Also painting holidays to France, Spain and The Lake District.
I studied graphics and illustration and after leaving art school, I worked as an illustrator and book designer for many leading publishing houses.
I accept commissions for portraits (people and animals) and architectural studies for developers and estate agents.
I regularly participate in ‘Open Studio’ events and exhibit figurative and landscape paintings and drawings in local galleries.
My paintings are representational and are inspired by shape, movement, colour and atmosphere, with a strong emphasis on drawing.
I love the translucency and immediacy of watercolour, the vibrant brush marks of oils and the expressive line and subtle tones of a drawing.
