Born in Kingston, Surrey, I originally studied Fashion at Epsom School of Art and Design and worked for many years as a freelance designer and illustrator whilst raising a family in London. Later I went on to study at Chelsea College of Art, graduating in 2002 gaining a BA honours in The Practice and Theory of Fine Art.
After moving from London to the South Coast, I now paint full-time from my garden studio at home.
Living a stone's throw from the sea is a constant source of inspiration. The ever-changing light reflected onto the sea and the rich and varied textures of the coastline are an important influence on my work.
Although I draw constantly I prefer to paint intuitively, working directly onto the canvas, allowing the paintings to emerge from a frenzied and chaotic fusion of line, colour and shapes. The process continues with erasing, scratching and gestural mark making until the desired composition and balance is achieved.
I have exhibited in London, various places in the UK and France. I have held group and solo shows, participated in fringe festivals and gallery trails in Brighton and Arundel.

I am also delighted to be showing work with Jenna Burlingham Fine Art gallery
