I combine a passion for art and painting with my day job as a consultant/trainer in the field of people development. Born in Chipstead, Surrey and lived mainly in London and the SE. Loved art and school but only in my 40s did I really explore being an artist.
My inspiration comes from the colour, texture and form of landscapes, seascapes and the fabric of buildings alongside my emotional response. Colour, tone, line, form and texture are all important. I particularly admire the work of the St Ives painters especially Nicholson, Peter Lanyon, Hepworth,Frost,also Rauschenberg, Sean Scully and Ivon Hitchens.
