I am a practicing artist and illustrator. I work in mixed media and collage, capturing moments, events and places where I have been. Lively and fresh, my work has been featured in magazines such as Cambridge Agenda and Cambridge University Alumni magazines. I have also illustrated a book about Cambridge, ‘Cambridge Treasure Island in the Fens’ by Nicholas Chrimes.
Over the years I have held several joint and individual exhibitions in the Cambridgeshire area. I am a regular exhibitor with Cambridge Open Studios and display themed paintings on my home life, my children and my travel. Much of my work is drawn from life and from my own photographs. My sketches are generally not reworked and provide the basis for finished pieces as I have a fresh and spontaneous approach to my work.
I am a qualified teacher in Art and Design, having gained a PGCE at Cambridge University, and teach on a part-time basis. I undertake a variety of commissions including specific scenes, cityscapes and portraits.
