my story

Born in 1968 in Walesby, Nottinghamshire I have been painting since childhood and professionally since 2005.

I am influenced by expressionism and naive art and my landscapes evoke a similar visual ethic to this area of art: an interpretation of my inner vision rather than the outer 'reality'.

I have exhibited throughout the UK and sold globally. I now have a studio gallery near Sherwood Forest, close to where I was born.


I sell paintings, prints and greeting cards of

my work.


As well as selling my original paintings and prints I also take on portrait commissions of people, pets or practically any subject - please contact me for details.



My studio & workshop is part of a beautifully converted Coach House and stables on the edge of Sherwood Forest, Edwinstowe, Nottinghamshire.


There are a large number of craft workshops and a cafe - I'm in studio 5 - come and have a coffee, a browse and a chat about art!
