I live in the estuary village of Lympstone in East Devon. Having been born on a pinnace on the Thames where my family lived, it has felt like a homecoming being among boats again. This waterside location has increasingly influenced my subject matter. I enjoy exploring effects of translucency, layering colours as glazes; methods that show what lies beneath the surface. For me this creates a sense of flux and of a connection to the past. The village is one of the few in the area where there is still small scale commercial fishing. My practice is partly an attempt to document this activity  and record the ebb and flow of life that revolves around the harbour.

In my current collection of artwork you'll find watercolours inspired by the Exe estuary, life drawings and a few sketchbooks. I also have a range of Giglee prints and greeting cards available.
