I paint in oils. I want to create images that captivate the viewer; a snapshot in time - a feeling of nostalgia but with a contemporary edge. I love the authenticity of painting from life, en plein air or from my own photographs or sketches.

I'm influenced by English, European and American architecture 1900 - 1950's. I am inspired by vintage ceramics, glass and enamelware. I'm always on the lookout for pieces that tell a story..

I have lifelong love of the work of painter Edward Hopper. I love the atmospheric quality of his work. I'm also influenced by artists such as the Scottish colorist Anne Redpath, as well as numerous contemporary painters - Lori Putnam, Colin Page, Karin Jurick, Paul Schulenburg, Haidee Jo Summers and many others, far too many to name!

I began working in Graphic Design before gaining an arts degree at Manchester Metropolitan University in England, and a follow up teaching qualification. After a number of years teaching I had a brief stint in ceramics before finally settling on oil painting.

​I studied oil painting at the Art Students League of New York and continue to attend workshops with artists I strongly admire.

Thank you for taking a look!
