I am an Artist, Illustrator and Tutor based in Worthing, West Sussex, England. I love to sketch the seaside scenes and gardens of Sussex and develop my favourite sketches into coloured limited edition prints.
My prints and cards are also available at the following Worthing stockists;
Worthing Museum and Art Gallery, Gifted Worthing and Inspired (a brand new colourful shop next to the pier).
I am also a trained Art Teacher and enjoy teaching drawing and painting to all age groups.
I run the monthly Saturday Sketchers class at Brunswick and Thorn, Worthing and have recently been holding Art workshops in a local Infant School.
I was delighted to be awarded first place in the Sketch Worthing competition in September! This was a sketchbook competition and there was a fascinating exhibition of books on display as part of the competition. I have always used a sketchbook to record places I go, and experiment with materials and it was so interesting to see the ways in which other Artists use their sketchbooks to develop their creative ideas.
I have an exhibition at Colonnade House, Worthing 19th November - 24th November 10am - 5pm. I will be showing some new prints of Sussex scenes as well as some original coloured ink drawings. I will also have my prizewinning sketchbook on display.
