I am mainly self taught but as a mature student I gained an A Level in Fine Art with distinction. I have always loved painting and drawing but it is only since I moved to Devon that I have been able to devote more time to my art. I am inspired by the Devon countryside and wildlife but I always seem to return to painting animals especially cats, from the humble "moggie" to the magnificent wild cats. I exhibit in London at the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery with the Society Of Feline Artists each year. I am also a member of the United Kingdom Coloured Pencil Society and was awarded "Best in Show" at one of their regional exhibitions. I also exhibit at local galleries and venues throughout Devon.
