My interest started at 13 years old and the art teacher at my school recommended me to Sutton Art School and there I studied many subjects and mediums.
My interest in flowers and natural form developed as did my love of watercolour, so for many years I studied this beautiful art form.
In 1988 I received membership to the S.B.A and have exhibited with them at The Mall Galleries and Central Hall Westminster.
I have also exhibited as a individual at The Turner Gallery, Denver, U.S.A. the Guild Hall and Alexandra Place, London plus many other galleries in the U.K. I also exhibited with a group in Manhattan, New York, and Sofeiro Castle in Sweden. I have had many of my paintings reproduced as Fine Art prints, greeting cards and other forms of media.
The Royal National Rose Society commissioned me to depict the story of the old rose, using roses from the Queen Mothers Garden of the rose. The work was then reproduced by Coalport as limited edition porcelain, then later as limited edition prints.
In 1995 I was awarded the first ” The Founder Presidents Honour ” a gold medal given by Suzanne Lucas for the best Painting in the spring exhibition.
I have gone on to share my passion by teaching many students.
