Four years ago I eBayed my belongings, left the city of Cambridge in the UK and headed to Alderney, a remote tiny Channel island, where I started to paint.

My unique surroundings and exploration of Alderney’s stunning coastline provide my inspiration. Sea, storms and coastal textures are suggested in my multi-layered abstract paintings.

In 2017 my work was shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, London.

I also had a solo exhibition at the 'CCA' Jersey's premier gallery alongside limited edition art by Damien Hirst, Sir Peter Blake and John Hoyland.

Latest paintings are available to view at Le Passage Gallery, Alderney.

Recently I’ve become 1 of 7 members of the newly formed ‘Rock Group’ of artists all creatively inspired by Alderney and with our base in Le Passage Gallery.
