Whod have thought it
I have been making pictures for as long as I can remember. I began drawing cartoons as a teenager at school and I have been receiving commissions as a freelance artist almost ever since, over the past two decades expanding into more personal paintings, drawings and prints.

My cartoons, illustrations and graphics have been used by a wide range of public
sector organisations - charities, NGOs and not-for-profit companies - in handbooks, reports, publicity material,training manuals and corporate imagery. I specialise in communicating complex, challenging ideas and concepts with humour and simplicity.

My painting, drawing and printmaking uses bold forms and colour to explore the borderlands between representation and abstraction. Whilst I draw inspiration from landscape, travel, music, story and myth, as well as personal experience, the work I make seems to have a life of its own, taking me where it wants to go. In this sense, I regard picture-making as a form of spiritual quest, an attempt to give expression and form to life's light, shadow and ultimate mystery.

Alongside my work as an artist, I am also an accredited Pyschosynthesis Psychotherapist and Counsellor, with a private practice in London.

I am based at the Kew Studio, in West London, where my artwork can be viewed by appointment.
