About me

I mix colours with emotions to help people celebrate life on earth.

You’ll find me out and about in every season - armed with my camera, curiosity and a sense of adventure: walking, watching, gazing.  Noticing shapes, lines, patterns, adjacent colours, shades, hues; scents, textures, movement and sound.  I listen to trees chatter and to running water.  I talk to the birds, watch passing clouds, stargaze and smile at the moon.

Nature feeds my soul and sparks my imagination.

In the studio, any of those captured moments may be present, as I choose colours and gestures to express feelings and emotions, creating original abstracts for you to collect as paintings, prints or silk scarves.

My studio is situated in South West France, south of Bergerac, in one of the bastides.

I move between there and Kent, in the UK.  At the moment, I'm in the UK, using the dining room table as a makeshift studio and having to embrace the constraints that this is forcing upon me!
