After a career in IT project management and three years helping to run a retreat centre in New Zealand, I responded to a lifetime’s desire to paint.  I studied fine art at Hereford College of Arts and the University of Gloucestershire and have worked since then as a full time artist, specialising in trees and woodland.  I exhibit regionally, lead workshops and undertake residencies.  I am currently spending a year as resident artist in a rather special ancient broadleaved woodland owned by Herefordshire Wildlife Trust.
