Passionate about landscapes

I began selling ink drawings of architecture in the landscape during my school years, producing local Suffolk images based in and around the coast.

Art and design, in my experience, continues to give a voice and raise hopes for alternative possibilities. Recovering health with creativity is a positive step forward to sharing and communicating in the world with others.

Working and studying architecture led me to an honours degree in design. During that time, I was so utterly inspired by the traditional C17th and C18th Grand Tour, that a friend and I headed to Europe for a summer with only our backpacks and sketchbooks. Travel has been a large focus in my life.

Designing interiors, bespoke furniture & kitchens, garden design and in later years, graphic design.

As a postgraduate from Homerton College, Cambridge, I taught Art and Design in and around Cambridge. For the best part of twenty years I’ve been involved in children’s education, while successfully completed an MA in Education. This was fundamental and relevant in furthering my development, passion and progression in printmaking.

Being a member of Sudbourne Park Printmakers, we exhibit regularly. Other exhibitions have featured many of my landscape paintings,  animal portraits  and a variety of design work which have been displayed locally in galleries and shops.

Sold work is now in private collections both in Europe and the United States.

Also involved in the creative design/artwork for the book: Your Guide to Early Honda Motorcycles and the David Silver Honda Collection, written by Roger Etcell, forward by James May and printed by Leiston Press.

I look forward to hearing from you.
