Art is my relaxation – my escape – my therapy – and meditation.

I am a Surrey-based artist whose creations are inspired by life, people, and the emotions of the day. My body of work consists of an eclectic collection of paintings produced in varied styles.

I began to exhibit professionally as a selling artist in November 2017 with First for Art at Denbies Wine Estate in Surrey. Additionally, selected collections can be found on display at the Capital Art Gallery in Greenwich.

As each new paintings begins, I never really know where it will end. Ideas are seldom drawn in advance, and an ad-hoc approach leads to some unusual endings.

Contrary to the popular ideal of painting in well-lit spaces, I tend to lower the lights as I find it incredibly hard to create in a brightly lit room. So, by a softened light, I let my imagination escape.

Most artworks are painted in one continuous session, when the majority of the composition will be completed. I return to work on finer details but frequently find I paint over a dried picture if I am unable to recapture the mood and feel my way back into the painting. The Escaped Art collection consists of lost paintings that have been over-painted or destroyed. However, many more survive and have found their way to new homes, as can be seen in my Sold collection.

All available art For Sale can be previewed, along with a selection of prints, canvas copies, and cards available upon request.
