I have always wanted to be an artist, I just cannot imagine being anything else. During the first few years after art school I was a teacher which was wonderful as children have so much talent and use it with a greater sense of fun than we grownups!
I have been very lucky in that since I graduated I have been able to show my work in a number of beautiful galleries and many of the people running these have become good friends.
In 1984 I was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painter Print-makers, which together with the Royal Watercolour Society is based at the Bankside Gallery in London.
In 1994 I moved with my family to the New Forest and my love of the English landscape found its perfect home. Since then this ancient part of England, in all its many moods and changes of weather has been my constant inspiration.
My studio is crammed with work in progress and my dogs. It is a great life!
