I was born and raised in Norfolk and moved to London in the ninties and have lived in Carshalton since 2003. Growing up in the countryside has influenced my art as I love to be inspired by nature and paint landscapes and still lifes. I studied printed textile design at Leeds university and sold fashion prints worldwide. I especially love to paint in oils where I can relish the rich colours and create interesting surface textures. I also use mixed media and printing techniques in my art portfolio.
Since 2010 I have worked in secondary education in the art and technology departments of local Sutton schools. I am a qualified teacher and support special needs pupils and also run several private art and sewing classes and workshops. For more information about these can be found at www.buddingartsist.org.uk.
Having a background in design I am a versatile artist and am happy to take on commissions and produce personal works specified to the client's taste. I offer a friendly and understanding service.
