I have lived in and around Sussex all my life. I currently live between south west London and the south coast. When I’m not in the studio I also have a day job and run my own coaching, counselling and leadership training business.

I love my home and enjoy nothing better than to be at home. I love to research painting and generally books on art are all over the house.

I can’t stop buying paintings and the walls are filled with paintings I have bought just because I like them. Often old paintings from a charity shop. They are all on the wall thrown randomly up – but it works.

I have several studio assistants – three cats and a dog. In all honesty it’s only one cat that is loyal and comes into the studio with me – Ambrose. He is chief art critic. The others visit but he has a cushion and sits on it behind me watching. As soon as I head to the studio and open the door he’s there.

Other than painting and work I love to sit and natter with my friends. I have a small but select group who I will text my new work to before I post to facebook. Over the years they have got really good at critiquing the work. And do the same for them.

I am an Associate Member of The United Society of Artists (AUA) and also hold an MA in Fine Art. Exhibit in London and the South East.
