I come from a creative family and I’ve always loved art.  For many years I worked in the pub industry and my role centred around compliance and legal issues.  I should have known that once I started wanting to interfere with interior design matters for the pubs and hotels, things were going to change! I got involved with buying original art for sites and designed a revamp of the head office reception area. 

I became a regular at local art classes in my spare time. Eventually I took the plunge, gave up my links with the business world and enrolled on a full-time arts course at Milton Keynes College. After that I was invited to stay on as Artist in Residence, which was a great experience, cut a little short by the arrival of a global pandemic!

During 2020 I established my own studio in Newport Pagnell from where I will also be able to teach and sell my art. I enjoy working in a variety of media and most of what I do involves combining elements from print, painting, drawing and photography, but I also love working in 3D.

I run SCAN Arts which provides creative workshops and teaching services for groups and individuals.  (See tuition section.)  Sharing the creativity I enjoy so much is what really makes me tick and I am as happy working with individuals as teaching in local educational establishments or for the charitable sector.  I do really believe that art is good for people.

I have exhibited at 200 Silbury Gallery, Milton Keynes Gallery, Westbury Arts Centre, Arts Central and in between two lockdowns – in my home! I have also taken part in digital exhibitions for MK College and Arts for Health MK.
