I am an artist principally using watercolour and mixed media. My favourite subjects are marine - particularly Cornish coast and harbours - and landscape. Final paintings are produced in the studio based on sketches and photographs made on location.
Visual texture in my paintings is important to me and I am excited by the often unpredictable marks obtainable due to the physical properties of watercolour. Most colour mixing is done on the paper. Much as I love watercolour I am neither a purist nor traditional in my approach and use collage, oil pastel and other water based media - gouache, acrylic and acrylic ink - when it suits.
I am largely self taught - developing my own techniques and style from countless hours experimenting with watercolour and other water-based media. I have also learnt a lot from attending painting workshops with many leading contemporary artists.
I am vice-chair of the Reading Guild of Artists. I have had work selected for the Royal Watercolour Society Contemporary Watercolour Competition for the fifth time in 2020, for the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2019 and for the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours 208th Exhibition.
