I have always had an interest in Art History and drawing and painting have always been part of my life. Whilst working in the NHS I was able to study and practice Pure Arts at College before teaching Watercolour Skills in Adult Education.
I am still fascinated by watercolours and enjoy the fluidity of the medium, but also work in oils and more recently acrylics. On trips in the UK and abroad paints come too, usually in a sketch book, and as well as providing a record, are often the basis for future work in various media.
I am lucky to live in the Cuckmere Valley in East Sussex, surrounded by beautiful countryside, where I continue to paint and hold small private workshops in my studio as well as visiting Art Groups and Societies to run demonstrations and workshops.
My work has been exhibited at:
Royal Institute Mall Gallery London
Towner Art Gallery, Eastbourne,
Penns Gallery, Eastbourne,
Ayot St. Lawrence Festival,
Open House Brighton Festival fringe,
Crypt Gallery, Seaford,
The Hop Gallery, Lewes,
The Underground Theatre Gallery, Eastbourne.
Birling Gap NT, near Eastbourne
I also exhibit annually with many local arts societies and have participated in ‘South East Open Studios’.
