My art practice is based on drawing  whether painting or printmaking. I work figuratively and mark making is the visual language that I use to express myself. Over time I have realised that it is also the way that I deal with the context of my life. My art allows me a dialogue with myself, a way of working things out, to place myself in relation to the world I live in.

I was born and raised on the west coast of Canada but have spent all of my adult life in England. My work has been selected for  various exhibitions, including the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, NOA and Wells Art Contemporary.

I am a member of the Printmakers Council and a director at Park Studios. Some of my prints can be purchased at Print Solo.  Original ink drawings are available here.
