I am an English artist, born, raised and educated (BA) in England. I have worked in the UK, part-time, as a professional artist from 1986 -2001. I now live and work in Andalucia, southern Spain. Since 2013 I have been free to work full-time.
I work to commission and inspiration, while continuing to teach and mentor.
I work in all media but specialize in soft pastel and my style is figurative/realism. I paint landscapes and portraits and my subjects may be real or imaginary.
According to viewers and collectors of my work in Europe, USA, Canada, New Zealand & Bahamas, my paintings evoke a feeling of peace and tranquillity. This is unintentional but does reflect my personality, I'm told.This journey through life brings its trials for all of us. For me, art is my retreat, my place of calm, where I may rest in The Lord while I paint and this peace, I wish to share with you.
My work has been exhibited in various English galleries, included in many exhibitions and published in newspapers, magazines and online articles in England and the USA.
For example, in 2017:
*The editor of "Artists & Illustrators magazine chose my portfolio to be in their
*Artsyshark, included my work in an online feature on figurative art;
*PKA New York, a bi-monthly publication about the arts, published three of my
paintings in three editions.
To date, all of my originals which have been offered for sale, have been sold.
This year (2018) my paintings are to be shown in the Barcelona Art Fair and in the Art Nou Milleni Gallery, central Barcelona.
I AM AN EXPERIENCED TUTOR.
Teaching, for me, is a great joy, but my teaching time has to be limited. So, if interested, please contact me well before you wish to begin a course. I teach one-to-one, here in beautiful Andalucia, or over the internet, and design courses to suit each individual.
I frequently WORK TO COMMISSION, painting portraits of people, houses, animals or landscapes. A landscape could be of a view which is close to your heart - perhaps from your honeymoon, or special holiday location? I'm happy to work from your own photos/videos. If interested, please contact me.
I hope that you enjoy my work. I paint subjects to which I feel an emotional response and this I try to express in my paintings, whether their source is real, or imagined, scene or portrait. Thank you for viewing my gallery and feel free to contact me via this website.
