I initially trained as
an illustrator and obtained first class honours degree. I have worked
on numerous books including Alice in Wonderland for Octupus and
Beauty & the Beast for Frederick Warne. I undertook many advertising
commissions and, with a London agent, worked for some years in this
In recent years I have been moving away from the
intricate style I'd developed for illustration into larger and more
expressive works. I now explore colour and I love taking risks in
it's application; the measured chaos. The challenge of creating
atmosphere, mood and bringing drama to the landscape is what excites
and challenges me.
Recent exhibitions include 'Branching Out' at The
Museum in the Park in Stroud with a theme of trees in the park and
using a collective approach alongside my own work we created vistas
and views with a sense of place. I am currently working towards
and exhibition at Gallery An Talla Dearg on the Isle of Skye from
October 7-30 2016.
