I am an oil painter living in Felixstowe, Suffolk moving into the area from Scotland in 1988. My work draws on word play, humour and love, with my style leaning towards realist, quirky still lifes and figurative moments, all designed to bring a smile, a smirk or a thought.
I regularly exhibit across Suffolk and in London and my work has appeared in the Ipswich Art Society's selected Annual Exhibition on several occasions of which I am a member and served on its committee for over 10 years.
