About

One of my greatest joys in life comes from painting people, whether in a portrait or a more scenic piece. I like to challenge myself to achieve an accurate likeness whilst keeping my brush marks lively, colourful and interesting. It’s the unexpected hints, marks and colours that can bring a painting alive.

In 2018 I was selected as one of 21 finalists in the Holly Bush Emerging Woman Painter Prize and also had a piece selected for the Society of Women Artists 157th Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London.

I’m a member of and exhibit with two East Grinstead based art groups: Example; and the London Road Group, which also runs life drawing on alternate Saturdays in East Grinstead.

My other life

I originally trained and worked freelance as an illustrator, and have since developed a career as a book designer and art director, which I work at part-time. I have had essays published in books on Illustration, have juried on national and international illustration competitions, have spoken internationally about illustration and have won awards for my art direction.
