I am a visual artist and designer living in a village outside Chichester in the UK, with my husband Luke (an infrastructure specialist in the Media industry), and daughter Orla.
I specialise in painting, illustration, photography and web design. The majority of my work is commission based for private collections.
I studied art & fashion design at Amersham School of Art (Foundation and Diploma) and subsequently fashion & textile design and women’s studies at UEL in London (BA). I have been working freelance for the past 20 years or so in London and on the South Coast and selling my art online since 2000. My background also includes marketing, project management, business training and experience (Post Grad Diploma and HNC).
Since graduating in the 1980s, I have exhibited all over the world and my work resides in many private collections, both in Europe, the US and South America. I have many artistic influences from the Renaissance, Baroque and Romantic, to the Post Modernist, and my art is also deeply influenced by the iconography and art of the Celtic La Tene period. I feel my work embodies a diverse and eclectic flavour with a keen eye for colour, form and symmetry. Mainly abstract in nature, my work is easily recognisable for its bold colours, texture and patterns.
Additionally, I am founder and co-editor of ArtJunky.net an online contributor based art and design magazine.
I am available for commission work on a selective basis. If you are interested in purchasing any of my drawings, paintings or prints, then please email me at: email@example.com
