Named as Aspire Magazine Group - Acrylic Painter of the Year 2014 - I am a Dorset based artist and photographer, I work from a studio in my garden overlooking the Frome Valley. I come from a family sprinkled with artists and have painted since childhood. My work is sold online, at exhibitions and I undertake commissions for clients, I specialise in house and garden 'portraits' but other topics are also welcomed. My work is created using palette knives and multiple layers of paint which is added and then partly removed to create texture and depth in the work.
I am contantly inspired by the work of Gertrude Jekyll an artist and gardener (1843 - 1932) who used plants in a painterly style in her own and the 400 plus gardens that she created for her clients
Recently I was accepted by The Society For All Artists as a Professional Associate Artist.
I am also an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society and my photographic images are used in books, advertising, media and online.
