I am inspired by the observation and memories of the world around me. Light, colour and texture are very important. Water and reflections are a recurring theme. I draw using charcoal and mixed media to experiment. I also paint textured oil paintings, applying layers of paint and using painting knives to give good clean colour, texture and depth.
I have exhibited widely in England and my work has been shown at Castle Park Arts Centre on numerous occasions, including my solo exhibition 'Force of Nature'. I frequently offer workshops in painting and mixed media, some workshops are held at the arts centre.
In February and March 2020 I will be exhibiting at the arts centre with The Peak District Artisans in a group exhibition entitled 'The Peak District Artisans at Castle Park Arts Centre'. I am also offering a workshops in March and May
