Pastel artist

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.
