About the artist
I am an English artist. I was born in London , and have also lived in Kent and the Channel Island of Guernsey. My earliest memories are of painting with my father who was a freelance artist and illustrator.
I studied fine art at Hornsey College of Art but was diverted from this course by well meaning parents - and other life changing events. Despite this I continued to paint whenever there was an opportunity, and many of my paintings are now in private collections in Switzerland , Canada and the United Kingdom .
The artists whose work I most admire are Max Ernst, Gustav Klimt, Paul Klee and Daniel Merriam. My own art work is informed by the natural world, and I paint places I love and find magical. I sometimes approach these subjects with super realism or employ abstraction to express my emotional response to them.
I now paint full time, and hope that you will enjoy the results.
