I am currently on holiday and will be back soon.

Artistic background

Welcome to my profile. I live and work in Worcestershire and have been painting for many years.

My work is inspired by nature in all its forms; from a close-up of a flower petal to paintings of birds in highly decorative backgrounds. I have recently become interested in the symbolism of things and have incorporated these references into my paintings using the written word.

Colour is an important part of my work and I paint vibrant, richly coloured canvases portraying the dramatic impact of form, colour, texture and scale which become apparent when observing a flower or plant at close-range. My ‘Flower’ series of paintings features close-range images on dark backgrounds which emphasise their energy and strength.

My work has been shown in open exhibitions at:
The Mall Galleries, London
The RBSA Gallery, Birmingham
The Williamson Art Gallery & Museum, Birkenhead
A solo exhibition at Birmingham Botanical Gardens.
