I am an artist based near Exeter, in the South West of England, inspired by horses and people, and the dramatic landscape around me. I paint to capture a moment in time, and what it feels like to be there, breathing life and energy into my subjects.
I was shortlisted for ‘Artist of the Year’ 2017 to 2019 and became an associate member of the Society of Equestrian Artists in 2018.
Come and take a look here at my original pastels and prints, and find out about my courses in the UK and Italy, my book and videos, or shop for pastel sets and more.
News and Exhibitions
Please not that despite Covid-19, you can still buy pastel sets and my book from this site, with sometimes just a few days added on to the normal postage times.
You can now buy my new video course, ‘A Beginners Guide to Pastels’ and other video courses as well. More details.
My book, ‘Pastels for the Absolute Beginner’ published by Search Press is available now. Take a look here to find out more about it, and to buy a signed copy.
Due to the Covid-19, some of the exhibitions I usually take part in will be online events this year….
Wildwood Arts Gallery Spring Exhibition is now online.
Delamore Arts, Devon, is online throughout May.
I am working towards an exhibition starting in July at the Harbour Gallery and Cafe at Porlock Weir, and I am hoping that it will happen!
At the moment I won’t be welcoming visitors to my studio but please get in touch if you are interested in any of my work on this website or if you would like to book a commissioned work. I can hold paintings until it is possible to deliver them.
I hope that you stay safe and well at this time.
Originals are for sale, click on the image for details of how to buy.
Commission your own unique and personal piece of art, perhaps to mark a special occasion. I can work from good quality photographs along with information about the personality of my subject. A commissioned painting will be treasured for many years.
