I have been working as a professional Painter since 2007.  I am best known for my contemporary oil landscapes characterised by a low horizon and rich skies on canvas, paper, perspex and wood.

Since 2012 I have been building my portfolio of original prints after completing the Certificate in Advanced Printmaking at The Curwen Print Study Centre.  My chosen printmaking technique is polymer plate etching.  For the 2014 Cambridge Open Studios I will be exhibiting my polymer plate prints and my boxed sets of cards at the Stapleford Granary.  I will be there on the 19th, 20th, 26th and 27th July. Doors open at 11 and close at 5 pm. 

I will be exhibiting my new collection of oil paintings at a solo show at the Over Gallery in October 2014 as well as continuing to exhibit at other galleries.

I originally trained in Furnishing Textiles, and further studies took me to The Cambridge School of Art. After returning from living in Southern California I now live, and have my studio, in Cambridge UK. Since then I have exhibited continually - predominantly in the UK but also in the USA. I also work on commissions throught the year for both oil paintings and collections of my original prints.

My work can be purchased through Cambridge Contemporary Art, The Over Gallery as well as other UK galleries. Various Cambridge outlets also stock my boxed sets of greeting cards.  For more information, and to view other work available please go to

Because I like to work with other creative people I often arrange alternative group shows.  I am the founder of the Cambridge Christmas exhibition, now in it's 7th year; a founder member of The Purple Printmakers and I am also one of the three founders of a new Printmaking exhibiting group - Cambridge Original Printmakers that launches in September 2014.
