Great Gidding

I am an artist based in Cambridgeshire. After working in industry for 15 years, I retrained as a teacher, eventually attaining the position as Head of Visual Arts in a Secondary School in St Neots. Since retiring from teaching, I have focused even more on my art.

 The Pre-Raphaelites era and many contemporary figurative artists have influenced much of my work. I like to explore a range of styles and techniques but there is always a human element in my work, whether through digital, drawing or painting. Ranging from the conventional portrait or layered image to a more narrative approach the main purpose is to create art that has beauty, requires investigation and generates an emotive response. Realism is fundamental to all my work and I revel in details and subtle changes in colour and tone. 

 Throughout all of this work is the need to occasionally take time to paint a simple portrait which helps to refine skills and visualise character. 

 I have participated in numerous exhibitions, some of which include : Royal Birmingham Society of Artists “Open All Media”, “Prize” and “Portrait”  exhibitions and was awarded the GMC Trust First Prize in 2016. Institute of East Anglian Artists (IEA) Open Exhibition and the Artists and Illustrators Artists of the Year Award 2018.
