I am a full time Painter & Printmaker. My work is often story based and I usually create a new body of work that I focus on throughout the year ready for release every autumn.
My practice explores the landscape through oil paint. I travel as much as I can. I use photography and sketching to record memories and then return to my studio here. I strive to portray a sense of tranquility and silence within my paintings.
I use my solarplate etchings to create a new collection of stories each year. I usually work on six new plates and I start the designing and sketching for these every January. I particularly like the relief method of solarplate etching.
I originally trained in Furnishing Textiles and Interior Design in London, later further studies in Fine Art at the Cambridge School of Art before relocating to the USA. More recently I completed the Certificate in Advanced Printmaking at the Curwen Print Study Centre. I have been working as a professional Painter and Printmaker since 2007. I will be returning to study part-time for an MA in Printmaking at The Cambridge School of Art in September 2016.
I particularly like to work with groups of people creating a stimulating environment using art. This could be a corporate or personal workshop, oil painting lessons or establishing events showcasing the work of Cambridge-based Artists. I am the founder of Cambridge Showcase and one of the three founders of the Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale. The next COPB is taking place at The Pitt Building in September 2016.
Corporate and private clients regularly commission me. Several oil paintings and original etchings can be found within Addenbrooke's Hospital. Private works are owned throughout the USA, Canada, Australia, Southern India, Mexico, the Middle East, France and the UK.
My etchings can be purchased through Cambridge Contemporary Art, The Rachel Dormor Gallery, and The VK Gallery. My paintings can be purchased through the Over Gallery, the VK Gallery and later in 2016, Gallery Plus in Norfolk. My greeting cards are stocked at Fitzbillies Café and Restaurant, Cambridge Contemporary Art and The VK Gallery.
Noel Garner, founder of Cambridge Art Academy, interviewed me on the advantages of having one’s own dedicated studio.
