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 find most inspiration.  Check out the latest details before visiting and feel free to get in touch.

You might prefer to browse my online shop in the search for your dream painting; If you've never bought original art before, have a look at "How to find the perfect painting". If you are looking for bespoke artwork to fit your interior aesthetic check out "How to commission a painting". Buying art is such an exciting process - enjoy the experience!

Come and enjoy some art!

An eye-catching painting with gorgeous shades of yellow and sage green; Rhythmic impressionist brushstrokes flow across the abstract landscape. A real mood-booster!
"Fields of Gold" is currently on display at my Gallery and available for free UK delivery.

"I so enjoyed painting this, placing thick brushmarks with so many subtle or more vibrant shades of yellow; letting the landscape unfold with it's own rhythm"


Surrey Artist's Open Studios is a great opportunity to visit a variety of artist's studios around Surrey. I hope to be able to open my doors and welcome you to my studio during this annual event alongside other local artists as part of the Golden Valley Art Trail
