I currently live in Ventnor, having moved from Farnborough, Hants in 1995 to join my family.  I gained an A'level in fine art at Farnborough sixth form college and continued to study at Farnham Art college before moving to the island.

I currently work full-time and paint and draw in my spare time. I'm predominately self taught, learning many of my techniques through experimentation.  Most of my work is painted in oils, I find this medium the most vibrant and versatile.  My paintings are mostly seascapes inspired by local scenes, painted from reference photos in a graphic, abstract style where nature and man-made objects often compliment each other.  I love the simplicity that a seascape can offer, the pure colours and patterns that nature creates and when combined with natural light or a stormy sky how a simple landscape can be quickly transformed.


More recently I have completed a collection of painted butterflies, shown in my Butterfly Collection.  I also have a passion for street art and admire how artists use this bold and distinct type of art as an inspiring form of expression and statement.     


I have been exhibiting for several years at the annual 'Isle of Wight Landscape exhibition' held in October at the East Dene Centre in Bonchurch.  I have also exhibited at several Art in the Park shows at various places on the Island over the years. Prints of all of my original paintings are on display and for sale at the St Maur Hotel www.stmaur.co.uk in Ventnor.  My work was published in the book 'Landscape paintings of the Isle of Wight 25 years of art exhibitions' by Professor Robin G McInnes MBE, Cross Publishing in 2010.


Limited edition prints and cards are available, as well as some original paintings.  Please see the Gallery homepage for further details and use the Contact Us page if you have any enquiries.
