I am a self-taught artist with a special interest in animals. My inspiration comes from several safaris in Africa. I paint in all mediums, with a particular love of acrylic, pastel and graphite.
In 2013 I was a finalist in the BBC Wildlife magazine’s Artist of the Year, with my painting achieving a ‘Commended’ in the final judging.
As a member of the Armed Forces Art Society, I regularly exhibit at the Mall Galleries in London. There I have received the ‘Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers Award’ (2012) and ‘Highly Commended’ (2013).
I have also had work included in the ‘International Fund for Animal Welfare’ calendar. I have paintings in Art for All, Chichester, and have sold paintings in that gallery. I have work in collections as far afield as Australia, America and Switzerland.
I am a member of several art societies, including Marwell International Wildlife Art Society and the Association of Sussex Artists.
