About Me - PT1

WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE

I am an artist and printmaker based in Leicester, in the heart of the East Midlands. Since graduating from a Fine Art Degree in 1984 and being a member of the Leicester Society of Artists, I have been working as a professional printmaker producing work for my portfolio, commercial illustrations and private commissions. Over the past 35 years I have also been involved in working with museums, art collections and a number of Art Residencies and I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to regularly exhibit work with fellow artists, both locally and nationally throughout the UK.

My father was a botanist and I grew up in the centre of Cambridge next door to the Botanic Gardens, which we would walk through on the way to our allotment on summer evenings – all of which laid the foundations for an enduring interest and love of plants, buildings, special places and the way we value and order the spaces we create – which in turn has formed continual reference and subject matter in my life as an artist.

A large part of my work features the buildings in and around Leicester that are part of the fabric of city life. These are a mix of iconic public buildings (such as New Walk Museum or the Market Place) and those more familiar yet nevertheless architecturally notable (such as Blunts Shoes or the Turkey Café).
