"i have lived and worked in Whitstable for most of my life and studied art the Kent Institute of Art and Design in Canterbury.  My paintings are of here, the ever changing sea and sky and the flat marshland inspire and challenge me.  

I work in oil on canvas and wood, mostly with a palette knife.  I paint in my studio at my home in Seasalter.  My work evolves over a period of time, layering the paint until the history of marks and colours creates the texture and form I want.  I have a close connection and love of the sea.  I enjoy swimming and sailing and just looking as much as possible.

I exhibit extensively in the Canterbury area and also in two London galleries.  I have also exhibited in France."
