I trained in textile design at Winchester and Loughborough Colleges of Art between 1972 and 1976, specializing in weaving. Subsequently I became interested in garden design and landscape painting: a dual career that has its roots in my childhood love of the outdoors and the natural environment. My work ranges from loose, coloured drawings executed on site, to watercolour and mixed media, semi-abstract paintings, produced back in the studio using sketches, photographs and memory. I am inspired by land and seascapes and rathan producing a literal interpretation, I aim to convey the spirit and mood of a place. I enjoy exploring  the subtle characteristics of watercolour: the accidental effects achieved by washing other ut; the marks, textures and edges of the paint and how I can manipulate them to convey the landscape.

 I have exhibited with the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour at the Mall Galleries in London.
