I am a mixed media artist specialising in experimental painting techniques, using a variety of media including watercolour, gesso, ink collage. Since studying constructed textiles at the Royal College of Art, my long career in textile design has continued to inform the subject matter and textures of my paintings which include a series of mixed media collaged landscapes, cityscapes and portraits of garments on paper and canvas using a wide range of processes. My work has been selected for and exhibited with the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour at Mall Galleries in both April 2018 and 2019 and shortlisted in 2020. Some of my paintings were exhibited with the Royal Watercolour Society at the Bankside Gallery in March 2019. My paintings have been sold to collectors in UK, USA, Europe and Australia. I teach experimental painting techniques and collage to small groups at my studio in a converted Victorian school in South East London.

Paintings are built up using layers of textured gesso, watercolours, inks, acrylics or oils and are then sanded and re-worked to develop a unique and enigmatic identity. I also sometimes incorporate my digital textile designs into my paintings using image transfer techniques directly onto the paper or canvas. I run small workshops in experimental painting techniques from my studio – email for more information.
