I paint full time, selling until now through contacts and exhibitions. My paintings are mostly in acrylic on canvas. I only use artist quality paints, and mediums, making sure my paintings will last. I studied at St Martin’s and Canterbury Schools of Art, and then worked in book design and was art director of Good Housekeeping, and launch art director of Country Living, before spending many years as a food and lifestyle photographer, shooting for magazines and advertising. Now I’ve returned to my first love of painting and work in my ancient cottage in Kent, taking inspiration from all around me.
