About the artist
I’ve never been very good at sticking to hobbies; over the years I’ve tried loads of them, including a brief spell at a potter’s wheel, to knitting, creative writing, interior design and even astronomy. The only one I’ve ever come back to time after time is painting.
I studied art through to A level and was lucky to have a brilliant teacher who gave everyone free reign to develop their own style, even letting us drink coffee and listen to the radio in the classroom which at the time felt pretty grown up! Painting and learning about art history have been passions of mine ever since.
As you can probably see, I’m quite a messy painter and like to use acrylics to build strong colours and textures. I also love working on massive canvases which tend to work well with my expressive style of painting.
