Welcome to


I’m a contemporary artist whose inspiration comes from my passion for nature, the countryside and its ever-changing seasons. I love nothing more in art than taking either a white piece of paper or canvas and making marks. My style can be as dramatic as the moody skies, as calm and detailed as a precious flower, then another day I can take ripped pieces of paper, paints, pens and fabric and get lost in a landscape. My work is constantly evolving. I enjoy experimenting with new ideas and sharing the results with students in regular “Arty Farty” workshops here in my studio in Water End near Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire.

 "I believe everyone can paint, if you can hold a pen and write your name, then you have control of an action, it’s up to us to find your style"

Join in the fun at one of our Arty Farty workshops taking place in Water End, Hertfordshire.

I have had the pleasure to work with Natalie Mclay of Trottiscliffe Willow for a few years, Natalie regularly has her work exhibited at Hampton Court and RHS shows. A great tutor who works well in groups, making sure each individual gets the right amount of help. You will have great fun, learn a new skill and take your own animal sculpture home.

I have worked as a visiting tutor for the past five years with Gill. Her workshops have always had a welcoming feel for the participants and the tutor. This relaxed atmosphere enabled me and the students to concentrate on the art course and get through a lot of work in one day. She was also always there to help as back up
when someone needed a little extra guidance so as not to detract from the rest of the class
and workshop. Always a pleasure to work with Gill.
