Drawn From Life


Really excited to be making plans for a new collaboration exhibition with Laura Froude, a new artist friend who also lives and works in Folkestone.

Drawn from Life and other Stories is part of the Creative Foundation’s Open Quarter season in June 2018 – with a really exciting programme overall.

In the Woodshed Studio, perched on the historic Bail Steps, our work is taking shape and we will officially open the exhibition to the public on Friday June 15th.

New Work for 2019


Already busy with new work for an Exhibition in April…

collaborating with fellow Folkestone artist,

Candida Wright

– carvings in stone and wood, drawings and paintings.

Work in progress, exploring a long held passion for horses. I’m painting direct on boards, using acrylic and liquid pencil.

I also have commissioned portraits on the easel,

no time for slacking!

The Woodshed is generally open at weekends between 11 – 4.30pm.

Usually working in the studio during the week. Call to check if you’d like to visit…

New Studio in progress…


I’m no longer at Kitty’s Seaside Shop!

It was great to be part of The Old High Street for a while. I’ve made some good friends and really enjoyed working there. The shop was only temporary however, while we were busy making other plans!

Attention is now focused on my new studio (still in Folkestone), which we hope will be ready by November.

I’ll post photos of progress – it’s going to be a brilliant place to work when complete.         In the meantime, I’m still accepting commissions.
