About Contact Links

My background is in silk painting. For many years I was an active member of the Guild of Silk Painters and a gallery member of the Surrey Guild of Craftsmen. More recently I have moved on to other media. I studied photography and obtained my City and Guilds Certificate which led to an LRPS distinction. I was interested in realist art and was introduced to the Encajar method of drawing and oil painting at London Fine Art Studios. This equipped me with the tools to express myself through drawing and painting from life.  My current  interests revolve mainly around plein air painting and life drawing.
