About Me...

I am a mainly self-taught artist living in Eastbourne on the South Coast of England.  I work in acrylics or coloured pencils and enjoy painting a wide variety of subjects.  I have work that I have sold showing in many parts of the UK and in Spain, the UAE, the USA and New Zealand.


I specialise in coloured pencil pet portraits and accept commissions at affordable prices.  If you have a favourite photo or subject you would like reproduced as an original drawing or painting, please contact me for a quote.

My Gallery, Sales & Exhibitions

Selected original paintings in my Gallery are for sale, others are available as a print.  Paintings for sale may be viewed at one of my exhibition dates.  Once we are able to announce new exhibition dates, I would love to meet you on the seafront in front of the iconic Eastbourne Pier and Bandstand or please contact me directly for further details.


I am a founder member of a small collective of local artists known as "Brushstrokes".  We meet regularly to paint together and during the summer, when permitted, we hold monthly exhibitions and sales of our work on Eastbourne Seafront.
