I was born in North London but moved to the West Country in 1986 after living and working in Australia, New Zealand and Tonga with my partner for two years. I am an architect and have specialized in tensile fabric structures for most of my career.

Having created a series of silk screen prints overseas my interest in drawing was rebooted with a pastel course run by Jennifer Davidson at the Barley Wood  Walled Garden in Wrington.

I enjoy exploring symbolism and humour in local landscapes and still life.
