I am a fine artist and art teacher. I am currently painting a series of large oil paintings of swimmers exploring my passion for portraits and water. During lockdown I have been teaching art to primary aged children, online which I have loved.
My artistic career began in 1995 when I studied Fine Art at the Southampton Institute. I first discovered my love for oil painting and photography at this time. I focused on portraits which were heavily influenced by David Hockney and Gerhard Richter. In 1998 I sold out my degree show and exhibited in 2 galleries in Southampton. In 2001 I completed a teacher training course,and gained a PGCE in art and Design at Middlesex University. I have loved teaching Art to all ages and have experience of teaching primary, secondary, adults and U3A.
