About Me


I have always been interested in art and crafts, particularly fashion design and textiles, but had little time to practise whilst working full time as an International Conference Organiser. However, I did manage to return to part time study and in 2011 obtained a first class BA(Hons) degree in Graphic Design & Illustration. The high point being to have the work from one of my student projects bought for Tate Britain's Artists' Books Library.


Since then I have been able to devote more time to my creative interests and discovered the pleasure of oil painting. It took some years for a style to emerge, and it is still developing.

Around 500 people visited the Otmoor Art Fair 2021 where I was very pleased to sell four paintings and a good number of cards.
