I am an oil painter living in Felixstowe, Suffolk moving into the area from Scotland in 1988. My work draws on word play, humour and love, with my style leaning towards realist, quirky still lifes and figurative moments, all designed to bring a smile, a smirk or a thought.
I regularly exhibit across Suffolk and in London and my work has appeared in the Ipswich Art Society's selected Annual Exhibition on several occasions. I am also delighted to have won both the Newcomer and Critic's Awards in the BT & Post Office Old Bailey, London shows.
I was a member of the Ipswich Art Society Committee for a number of years and the Chair of Key Arts in Ipswich an artist-led exhibition space to share appreciation of all forms of the visual arts.
