I grew up living close to the rugged coastline of St Ives. Creating art has always been a natural way to express myself. It is an integral part of who I am. There is a need to create, express and communicate visually. Mainly I use acrylics and at times mixed media to record my response to what I see and feel. My life experiences have enriched my process and work practice. Emotions, memories and imagination drives me to produce dynamic paintings, often mirrored by the elements and landscape. I regularly exhibit and my work has been collected internationally. I was shortlisted for The Evening Standard Art Prize in London and I am a Member of the National Acrylic Painters' Association.
