Drawing, painting and sketching is all about enjoying what you are doing. Hence, my subjects tend to be food related! whether it’s some seasonal produce (a freshly picked bunch of beetroots), painting a handsome bullock or baking cupcakes with my little girl.

I also love to paint in a garden; capturing delicate florals and their insects fluttering around them, or sitting on a hillside working on a landscape view. I hope that my paintings are both fluid and lively; I will often bring over a detail with hand written anecdotes.

In ’87 I graduated with a degree in graphic design, specialising in illustration. I thought the place to be was the city and relocated down to London renting a small studio in bustling Covent Garden. It was a great time. Ultimately though, home and family were in Cheshire and the countryside meant more to me than being able to buy a frothy cappuccino within 50 yards of wherever you may be.

A spell with a design agency in Chester and marrying Neil followed by having two gorgeous young children, means that I now have less time than ever to paint. But it’s all great fun and I genuinely love what I do.

Exhibitions I have had include Young Illustrator of the year exhibition at Smiths Gallery Covent Garden, The Association of Illustrators Gallery in London, The Arts Centre in Bollington, Cheshire. ‘A Taste of Cheshire’ this successful, solo show was to show case some of our fabulous local producers, farmers and artisans that are wonderfully committed to producing tasty, seasonal, local food. I fully endorse and draw a great deal of inspiration from them, they work to get the best out of their environments, whilst treasuring and nurturing our countryside. And, indeed provide me with a wealth of subject material. Last year I exhibited paintings at Summerfields show in Oxford in aid of the Art for Youth.

I hope that you enjoy my website and please drop me a line if you would like to discuss a project you have in mind - I’d be delighted to help you.
