Welcome to my website!
I am a professional artist, illuminator and art tutor living in Lincolnshire, UK.
Please click on the images below to read more.
I create illuminated pages, both traditional and contemporary, using 24 carat gold and egg tempera. For the traditional pages, I use, as far as is possible, the pigments that would have been used at the time, extracted from rocks, roots and berries. I have a Diploma from the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts and am honoured to be Lincoln Cathedral’s Artist in Residence.
Clicking on the quill above will take you to my website about traditional art, pigment, ink and paint recipes, my work in conjunction with the Historic Lincoln Trust and (very soon!) my experiences at the Cathedral.
An award winning wildlife artist, I have work in private collections across the world. Finalist in the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year competition and winner of the Fine Art Trade Guild industry award for ‘Best Depiction of the Living World’, I have also produced fully illustrated chapters on painting animals for two publications.

An experienced art tutor, I enjoy teaching skills as varied as medieval manuscript illumination and the use of the most up-to-date acrylic mediums. I use graphite, acrylic, mixed media, pen, ink and wash and pastel regularly and am happy to teach all five to individuals or groups.
