BIOGRAPHY

I was born in the South East and moved to Plymouth, Devon when I was 10 years old.  Accordingly, my teenage years and early adulthood was spent visiting Dartmoor and the beautiful sandy beaches in both South Devon and Cornwall.  I always loved drawing but most of my working life was spent amidst buying and selling houses in a solicitor’s office.  In the late 80s I moved back to my roots relocating to the South East.  It wasn’t until after my family was complete that, by chance, a friend asked if I would like to enrol on a college course at City College in Brighton.  This course turned out to be the Pre-Foundation and after a couple of weeks I was hooked!  Once this was finished I enrolled for the two year part time Foundation Course before moving to Northbrook College, in Worthing, to complete my pathway with a Fine Art Degree.  I ended up graduating in 2011, the same year as my eldest son!

I love living in Sussex.  I’m in the middle of the countryside and yet only 10 minutes on the train from Brighton and just under an hour to London. I am very lucky being able to work from a studio in my home, the window of which overlooks my garden.  From the back of the house I can see the South Downs and the Jack and Jill Windmills at Clayton.  I have so many inspirational things around me and find that there aren’t enough hours in the day to draw and print as much as I would like.

Some of my wall art has appeared on the BBC Drama series “Cuffs”.

My textile design sales include those to IKEA, TJ Maxx and Pottery Barn.

A selection of my images are produced as cards and these are available to buy in outlets throughout Sussex and the South East which include the National Trust.
