Contemporary British Artist based on Surrey / Hampshire border

I paint from my studio at Applegarth Farm in Hampshire and I love chatting to visitors who drop by. I am lucky to live and work in the beautiful Surrey & Hampshire countryside, but painting and sketching at the coast, is where I am most inspired.  Check out the latest details before visiting and feel free to get in touch.

You could also browse my online shop to find your ideal painting; If you've never bought original art before, have a look at "How to find the perfect painting". If you think you need more bespoke artwork to fit a particular size or interior aesthetic, check out "How to commission a painting". Buying art is such an exciting process - enjoy the experience!

Come and enjoy some art!
