Hello, and welcome to my website!
New - Week long solo exhibition in Ipswich Tourist Information Centre
I'm very excited to announce a date for your diaries - Mon 23rd May to Sat 28th May incl. in St Stephens Church, St Stephens Lane (opposite the main entrance to the Butter Market in the heart of Ipswich) Not only am I exhibiting and selling originals, prints, cards and bookmarks but I'll also be donating the proceeds of the sale of certain cards and a raffle of two framed prints to the Blue Cross Animal Sanctuary. As the date draws nearer I'll put up more details but my facebook art page will be the quickest and easiest way to keep in touch with progress.
10th February 2016
Five new images added (and several more in the pipeline!) I've completed several commissions recently, with a couple of them already being some of my favourites.
January 28th 2016 - Suffolk Open Studios 2016 - Once again I'll be opening my home up to anyone who fancies a drive out to Shotley to view my canvases in their "original home" surroundings for every weekend in June. In the first two weekends I'll be part of a "trail" of 9 artist studios all over the Shotley Peninsula. For weekends 3 and 4 there's only one other artist besides myself - which should mean I have more time to chat and even demonstrate some of my favourite techniques.

16th October 2015:
"Art at Arlingtons" - I was really excited to be asked to be an exhibitor at Arlingtons Brasserie in Ipswich over the coming weeks until November 16th. Alongside 4 or 5 other artists, I have 9 originals on show in the beautiful surroundings of the Brasserie Gallery - which was originally a purpose built museum of Natural History and a Lecture Hall, created to bring education to the populace of Ipswich.
Further information about this fascinating Brasserie can be found on their website, here.
"Uniquely Away" magazine article
I'm really excited that Uniquely magazine decided to devote a 2 page spread to me in their latest edition - and I love the results! Have a read for yourself and let me know what you think by coming back and sending me a message! The article can be found here

I enjoyed exhibiting at Art on the Prom so much that I've decided to try a couple of Saturdays on Colchester High Street Market. As soon as I get the dates confirmed I'll put them up on here - but I'm hoping for early October!
Art on the Prom 2015 - Felixstowe seafront
HUGE thank you to everyone who came to see me on Sept 6th down at the
seafront during what turned out to be the best Sunday weather for
several weeks in either direction! I'll put a picture of the stall onto
my "Exhibitions and Shows" page shortly.
February 2015 - Reflection and Anticipation
I've developed some rather unique methods for creating beautiful gift cards and bookmarks. I've put full details on this page
My art is heavily influenced by my surroundings - the beautiful
countryside, villages and people of Suffolk, UK. I have a particular
affinity for animals, and my six cats provide
endless inspiration as they play and explore.I also like to experiment with more avant garde abstracts and
architecture, and occasionally like to dabble in sculptural pieces made
from everyday objects, glass and even bone.
I received a BA Hons in Art in 2004, studying as a mature
student whilst bringing up 5 children and looking after the menagerie. Phew!
I hope you enjoy looking at my work and find something to interest you. If you do, please feel free to e-mail me - the details are on my 'contact' page.
