Following an Art Foundation course at Lincoln College of Art I studied Illustration at UWE Bristol and then transferred to Edinburgh College of Art where I graduated in 1997 with a BA (Hons ) in Visual Communication.
The day to day sights that I see on the school run often inspire my paintings, cycling through the higgledy - piggledy streets I love the charming buildings and quirky characters that I see. I love nature, a beautiful pair of spotty wellingtons or a stripy scarf.
Sitting at my living room table I turn my simple sketchbook doodles into cheerful paintings, I like to use acrylic paint combining a muted palette of chalky blues, greys and whites with an uplifting dash of red.
My wish is to capture a quiet moment that makes people smile.
A wonderful Art and Craft Gallery situated in the heart of Witney, just off the market square. From big names like Leigh Lambert, Leanne Christie, Quentin Blake, Dan Crisp, Allan Morgan and many others, to Emerging and local artists. The gallery showcases over 50 wall Artists, 30 Potters as well as Sculpture, Glass, Wood and Jewellery. The ever changing gallery is set over two floors, so there is always something interesting to discover.
