Painting & Drawing • Purple Route

My inspiration stems from the natural world. Although I still occasionally work en plein air, my imagination has a free rein in the studio. Here I can give voice to my inner thoughts, yet still I hope translate the joy and excitement I experience.

My Practice

I drew constantly as a child, and after studying at Art college, I won a painting competition sponsored by the BBC. My entry was purchased by the Marquis and Marchioness of Burford, followed by the offer of a solo show at Harrods. I have exhibited with the RSW the RWS, and The World of Drawings and Watercolours, Park Lane, London

Tools & Materials

Although my work is an abstraction, often derived from landscape, my plein air paintings have a freshness and spontaneity more often associated with Watercolour.
