Born and grew up in Oxfordshire I have had a love for art right from an early age. Following A Level Art I continued to study art and design by attending Banbury Art College and finally a degree at the Surrey Institute of Art and Design in Farnham. Totalling six years of art and design training. After many years of working as a Packaging Designer I picked up a paintbrush again and the creativity and excitment instantly flowed back! I knew then that I wanted to be a full-time artist, so I took the plunge!
I enjoy experimenting with all types of mediums such as ink, acrylic, oil and watercolour to create paintings inspired by the beautiful local countryside and seascapes from my travels. The application of the medium is an exciting experience for me. I try different techniques to create interesting marks such as splashes, dripping, masking, dry brushing and fluid paint. I have also designed for young children a range of quirky paper craft 3D pictures.
Where I sell my Work
My paintings can be found here on my website, my Etsy shop gallery and also at www.wychwoodart.com.
My animal watercolour prints are also on sale at Cogges Farm Shop in Witney,
West Oxfordshire. Why not visit to make a lovely family day out!
In Witney Town centre you can find more of my popular individually hand-painted Cards at the SOTA Gallery.
I attend regular local Art Markets including Oxford (Broad Street) and Abingdon (market place) and some larger annual shows such as the popular Autumn Show at Malvern's Three Counties Showground during September. My main event of the year is participating in Artweeks at Charlbury for nine days during May.

Teaching is a great passion of mine too, with the aspiration to inspire others to get creative and learn some handy techniques and tips along the way!

I also hold 2 hourly lessons in smaller groups on a monthly basis in between my art fairs.
I am often invited to host occassional lessons or day workshops for local art groups. Please contact me with your requirements if you are interested for me to host at your local art group based in Oxfordshire. Or, you might just want me to come and perform a talk through painting demonstration. I charge £40 per hour plus travel and set up time.
In contrast to my paintings, my range of unique 3D paper craft children's artworks were created from one design that I made for my twins' nursery when they were babies. After having lovely feedback I decided to develop them further and add them to my collection.
