I am a self-taught artist - inspired by my maternal grandfather, who was a member of the Royal Academy.
I have had pieces in The Handmade Gallery, in art exhibitions throughout East Anglia, and am a member of local groups: the March Hare Collective, the Bury St Edmunds Art Society and Suffolk Open Studios.
Strongly believing that art can serve good causes, some of my paintings have been donated to charities for auctions. Many exhibitions I took part in, involved donating a proportion to charities.
I was thrilled that a specially commissioned piece of glass artwork, taken from an original painting of mine, was unveiled by Lady Elsie Robson, the widow of Sir Bobby Robson. The piece called “Felicitree” a vibrant and upbeat impressionistic work, now permanently resides in The Breast Care Unit at the West Suffolk Hospital named after Lady Robson, along with other paintings of mine.
