I am a professional natural history artist and miniaturist, living near Petersfield, Hampshire UK. My inspiration comes mainly from the natural world, where my love of depicting detail can be indulged. Shells, birds, insects and animals appear in many of my artworks. I love painting whimsical, quirky, characters and bringing them to life.
I am a member of The Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers (RMS) and in 2012 I received an "Honourable Mention" certificate (runner-up in the Gold Bowl award) in their annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London, for my graphite pencil miniature artwork. This year (2017) I won the RMS "Best group of 5 or more miniatures" in the exhibition, which was presented to me by Dame Patricia Routledge. I exhibit with the RMS at the Mall Galleries, London every autumn. Locally I show work with the Petersfield Art and Craft Society every August in Petersfield, Hampshire and take part in Artist's Open Studios.
