Abstract & figurative artist, educator

Top Teacher





Whether you want to learn new skills or brush up on rusty ones, I would love to help. I have been a selling artist for around 35 years. In my own practice I use pen & ink, pastels, oils, acrylics, and watercolours regularly. My work hangs in private collections around the world.
I love what I do, and I teach what I love. We can do good things together here, so let's get started...

About me:
I'm an Ameri-Brit (dual citizen), living on the North Cornwall coast of the UK. I've been here nearly two decades, but have lived in Indiana, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Berkshire (UK). I am studying Spanish daily with an aim for becoming bilingual. Hola, artistas.

My work covers everything from graffiti-influenced illustration & mixed media abstracts, to more traditional painting & drawing. I am never bored - despite wizard-level ADHD - because I believe in exploring as many of your wild ideas in art as you can.

You may have seen me as a part of online workshops with Peggy Dean (The Pigeon Letters), demonstrating for Daler-Rowney, various online interviews, on-site painting murals, or teaching workshops & classes to artists of all ages and abilities.

I've done a lot of stuff over the years, so if you'd like to learn even more about me, has tonnes of info. (I have an Industrial Design degree, I've been Janet in a live production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and I was a regional corporate display artist for former (US) national retail giant Musicland Group. Oh, and I had a career in the direct mail print industry for awhile, where I became proper nerdy. I even did web work for a spell. Never bored, I tell ya.)

When I'm not drawing, painting, illustrating, or writing, I play video games, cook (and love to cook for others), participate in beach cleans, sing loudly, and am probably spilling tea down my front.
Mucho gusto. :)
