2022 Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2022 and a new creative year. I have plenty of courses and classes planned and details will follow soon. Please look through the Events page for information on what is already happening.

IT'S BACK Online Art Course Available Now!

My online art course Creating Surface Textures is a series of six video lessons in which you will learn some new and interesting techniques.

Included with the videos is a summary of techniques used and a list of the materials required.

The cost of the course is just £60.00, and you'll be able to watch the videos as many times as you like. Please contact me for more information.


My recent work focuses mainly on the use of acrylic inks to which I add other media. My earlier work uses other media—most specifically soft pastel, acrylic paint and watercolour pencils.

The Studio

I run courses, workshops and other events for people of all ages. Here you can find out what’s on at the studio and see pictures from past events.


I display my work several times throughout the year at galleries, community arts centres and festivals. See what’s coming up and have a look at displays from previous years.
