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.
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.

An experimental workshop using acrylic inks with other media. Students will learn to apply inks in a variety of ways and experiment with a range of surface texture techniques and mark making opportunities. Using colour in a variety of ways will also be a feature. This course will benefit those who wish to develop their own practice, and add a new dimension to their work or try something new.
