About The Artist

I studied Fine Art at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts, graduating in Painting and I have continued to paint ever since. When my children were young, I started to glass-engrave, as this didn’t need the same commitment as a large oil painting. I still continued to paint, but to a lesser degree and mainly watercolours.

I have also taught Life Drawing and Basic Design part-time in various colleges of Further Education, mainly to Architecture and Interior Design students.

My paintings are based on Realism, Observation and Recording. It might be a particular event or a sequence of events, a time of the year, an unusual happening or just something I think is beautiful or interesting. I want to show ordinary scenes in a compelling way; I want to draw the attention to what are quite often everyday occurrences.
I paint in Oil, Acrylic and Watercolour and also take the occasional sculptural commission.
