Following a BA in Fine Art from Portsmouth College of Art an early career of producing highly wrought, intensely detailed paintings sold through the Portal Gallery London and illustrated children’s books published by Methuen and Jonathan Cape was established. 

This came to an abrupt end with major eye surgery and was followed by teaching art in Further Education and running classes in the home studio.  Recent paintings include experimenting with oils, acrylics and watercolours often using collage and layering as a basis – which is great fun!  Colour has always been an intense characteristic.
