I started creating at a young age while growing up in Arundel in West Sussex, England. I moved to the US as a teenager and studied Art and Business in College. After taking a break from creating art to pursue a career in Arts Administration and the non-profit world (where I still spend a lot of my time), I picked up the brushes again back in 2015 inspired by the vibrant colors in our natural world: grown food, wildflowers, landscapes, and seascapes both from places I love here, and back in England. I notice color and light and the subtle and not so subtle changes in them that alter our views completely; I love to try to capture that beauty.
I have exhibited in shows in Arundel, England as part of the Arundel Festival Gallery Trail (2017, and 2018), in Emerging Artist shows at Rockport AA&M (2018 and 2021), had a piece chosen for Rockport AA&M National 2020, and at Newburyport AA as part of their In All the Bridges We Made juried show in 2021. I was juried into the Marblehead Arts Association in 2021.
I live on the beautiful North Shore with my family and spend as much time by the ocean as possible. When not painting I am usually seeking active adventures and hanging out with my 3 energetic boys.
I happily take on commissions of your favorite subjects, and have originals, prints and cards for sale, contact me for details. I would love your feedback! You can also find me on Instagram and Facebook. More studio photos can be found here.
