I was born in Wallingford in 1972 and attended Falmouth School of Art where I studied illustration. I was a graphic designer for over sixteen years before deciding, in 2010, to become a professional landscape artist.
For most of my life, I have lived in the small village of Aston Tirrold which is in South Oxfordshire and is right on the edge of the Berkshire Downs.
Since my first solo exhibition in Wantage in 1994, I have exhibited at galleries and museums in many counties in the South of England. I regularly participate in Oxfordshire Artweeeks Open Studios and throughout the rest of the year I volunteer my time as a director on the Oxfordshire Artweeks board. I am also a member of the Oxford Arts Society.
My paintings tell stories that connect people, land, heritage, culture, environment and communities. Absorbing life and landscape in my home counties has had a profound influence on my interest in chalk landscapes, with an especially close interest in ancient landscapes and prehistory.
