Artists Statement

My  work is influenced by events, landscapes, books I read and the work of artists I admire.

I studied Environmental Design/Architecture at Chelsea School of Art and The Royal College of Art and worked as an architect/designer in London. I always found time to paint.  In 2009 I moved from London to Somerset. Robin Child has been an inspirational teacher.
