My background is in fine art publishing, advertising and interior design, so there was always a creative element in just about everything I did. Now I have the freedom to concentrate on painting, I spend a good deal of my time working in my garden studio in St Albans.
I enjoy painting a wide variety of colourful subjects inspired by just about anything that fires my imagination, working mainly with acrylic paint and inks, as they are so versatile.
Over the last few years I have exhibited at many galleries and exhibitions throughout Herts and Beds and with HVAF at Open Studios and other events. I also do commissions.
My paintings vary from figurative through to abstract and I'm constantly experimenting with different ideas in the hope of bringing a fresh approach to each subject I tackle. Sometimes I work from real life and sometimes from inspirational photographs, but increasingly from ideas that are shaped by my travels and general life experiences.
