The workshop takes place on Friday 24th November 2023, from 10:30am to 3:00pm, and will be held at at Fosseway Garden Centre, Moreton-in-Marsh.

Booking is essential! Find out more on the Events page.

Changes and New Horizons

I am now based in Moreton-in-Marsh in the Cotswolds and no longer work from my studio in Charlton, and I thought you would like to know how things have changed.

Moreton-in-Marsh is full of new opportunities and I have met many people who are looking to be creative. Currently, classes are running from my home in Moreton and we are very near to the wonderful Batsford Arboretum which is a neverending source of inspiration for students.

The events page of my website will show you classes that are running and classes that are available to book. There is also the option for people to contact me for group bookings for workshops, etc.

I still love to share images on my website of my lovely studio in Charlton which hopefully provides a snapshot of the work that I do.

Looking forward to many new ventures this year.

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.
