    Statement

     Dreams, humour, places and found objects are recurring motifs in my work . I create art spontaneously and emotionally using a wide variety of mediums playfully mixing  fiction with make belief. I am particularly interested in allegory and artifacts and how they can relate with the inner world of the viewer . 

    Biography

     Born in Salisbury, Wiltshire, I studied art in Florence, Italy, and did my MA in Printmaking at Wimbledon School of Art. I have been teaching art and creative subjects to children during my working life and now that I am retired I spend a lot of time travelling , sketching and producing a variety of work in my studio. I recently completed a commission of 12 watercolours of Ethiopian scenes for the Ethiopian Embassy's charitable project Link Ethiopia. I exhibited my ceramics at the Day Of The Dead festival by the Mexican Embassy 2014 at The OXO tower .
