I enjoy making work using paper and other materials. Collage is a great way to extend the creative possibilities of the Life Model.

I have been drawing all of my life. For me it is the starting point for everything that I do, and is a wonderful skill. It creates the basis for and strong knowledge of form and design, and underpins all my paintings and 2D work.

I have worked from the Life Model since attending Art College. The human form is a passion of mine, an enduring interest, capable of expressing the widest range of emotions of any subject. I also teach Life Drawing Workshops at my studio, Art at The CartShed. Please email me for further details.

Mixed media is a continuing interest and area of exploration in my work. We also do one project on Mixed Media each term in my classes at The Creation Space, Basingstoke, RG21 3DH.

My camera is always with me, along with my sketchbook. In addition to using information from my photographs as a basis for some landscape paintings, I also print cards from my photographs. These are available for sale.

I regularly exhibit my work, both in Hampshire and London.

Commissions are always welcome. Please see my website for examples of work that I have completed. I am pleased to offer Portraits, either from life or photograph, and landscapes/cityscapes. I make paintings and drawings of Musicians, which I am happy to be commissioned for. Some work in mixed media. If you have other subjects do contact me for more details.

I have 24 years experience of teaching Art, both in London and Hampshire. I currently teach at The Creation Space, Proteus Theatre Company, Council Rd, Basingstoke, RG213DH. I also run Workshops in my Studio at Art at The CartShed.

I run Life Drawing Workshops usually twice a term in my Studio in Bramley Hampshire. For details please email me. I also run drop-in half day Drawing Workshops, join my email list for dates of these.
