Biography

I paint landscape, portrait, still life; telling a story or expressing emotion, emphasising light, tone and colour. I work in a varied style but mostly "post-impressionist", or "academic" rendering. I am influenced by Van Gogh, Money, Singer Sergeant, Hockney. AWARDS: In 2015 I won Bronze Frame in the international ArTTable Be Still competition with a water-colour still-life and had 4 other pieces exhibited. In 2020 I won the SAA Best Professional Still Life Artist. I also won a Merit Award with LightSpaceTime in the USA for my landscape work in the 10th Annual "Open" 2020 Art Exhibition. I was shortlisted for the Pastel Society exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London, 2015. For the ArtaVita competition, I was awarded a Certificate of Excellence as well as being invited to hang my work at their New York Gallery. I appeared with a double-page spread and cover in Aspire Magazine during 2015. Marija Posso, a curator based in New York says: "I really enjoy your art, especially the visceral, landscape paintings. Each piece conveys a sense of endless wonder and imagination. Your stylistic approach reminds me of reflections, memories, and dreams combined with reality. I find these works to be thoughtful, moving, and I'd like to know more about them." I spent over 40 years as a respected and qualified typo/graphic designer, producing magazines, corporate branding, and printed ephemera. I was trained at the old Croydon School of Art and at the Central School of Art, London. I tutor art for a couple of hours weekly for the Caterham All Day Art Club. I work both in my studio or 'en plein air', using light, colour, and a 'story'. I have exhibited with the Guildhall Gallery, PainterStainers' Fine Arts and Crafts Society, the Dorking Group of Artists, the Bromley Art Society plus various Galleries, and am at www.saatchionline.com/profile/178864 and at Red Bubble. In 2020 I am learning about art marketing through LinkedIn, Instagram, and Facebook and am working from my Biggin Hill Studio.
