Hello and welcome to my website. I’ve been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember and became a professional artist in 2013. Having moved to Bewdley, Worcestershire in 2017, I became artist in residence to the nearby Arley Estate and consequently opened artists’ studios in the village of Arley, a beautiful tranquil setting that would inspire any artist. 

I’ve always had a love of nature and am constantly inspired by the birds and animals that live in the woodlands that surround my home and studio. As well as depicting wildlife, I have a real passion for teaching art and for the joy it brings to students, particularly those using watercolour and charcoals for the first time. I run weekly classes and luxury, immersive retreats throughout the year, the details of which can be on this site. 

My subjects tend to be wildlife predominantly, which I render in watercolour and charcoal. I am represented in the UK by Demontfort Fine Art Ltd. and sell my originals through Whitewall Galleries, Clarendon Fine Art, various independent galleries and a number of cruise ships. Open edition prints of my work can also be bought in retail outlets such as Next, Amazon and Wayfair. 

I’ve also designed artwork for educational bodies, giftware companies, breweries and bands, most recently for Robert Plant’s new band "Saving Grace".
