I am a professional painter working mainly in egg tempera.
University of Brighton Fine Art Degree course
My work has been frequently exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and the New English Art Club and I have been a finalist in the Hunting, Garrick Milne, Lyn Painter-Stainers and Singer and Friedlander Prize exhibitions. In 1998 I won the Sotheby's -sponsored Chichester Art Prize and in 2000 was commissioned to provide twelve paintings for the Sussex Book of Revelations, an Arts Council Millennium Project which toured Sussex libraries. In 2004 I completed a commission for the House of Lords.
I live and work in Lewes, Sussex and have paintings in collections in Belgium, France, Germany, Holland, Spain, Norway, Sweden and the US, as well as the UK.
In late 2014 I held a major solo exhibition at Schloss Tiengen in Germany and another in the French city of Blois in 2017.
