  • Artist’s Statement

    I did my main training in oils firstly with Leslie Sinclair followed by time with David Moore at Montsalvat. I also studied with Alan Martin at his home /studio in Eltham for a short time before his death. My mothers best friend was Sonia Skipper a founding member of Montsalvat. It was this long friendship which enabled me to hear the marvellous storeys and to eventually be invited to have a solo show in the long gallery in 2006.
