I studied Art in York and Sheffield after nineteen years teaching History in England and abroad.
I live in York and paint in North Yorkshire. I also go on painting field trips abroad. My favourite spots are quiet and fairly isolated like the Yorkshire Wolds.
My work has been shown widely in North Yorkshire and further afield including:
The Zillah Bell Gallery, Thirsk; The Saltbox Gallery, Helmsley; The Triton Gallery & The library, Sledmere House; Beverley Art Gallery; York Open Studios; The Ferens Gallery, Hull; The Battersea Affordable Art Fair, courtesy of The Enid Lawson Gallery, London; The North York Moors Centre, Danby; The Masham Art festival; Helmsley and Pocklington Art Centres and The Llewellyn Alexander Gallery London, Not the RA exhibition.
Selected for the Ferens Art Gallery Open exhibition, Hull City of Culture
Two paintings short listed for the Royal Academy Open exhibition, London; one of which was Selected but not Hung.
Selected for the Society of Women Artists Annual Exhibition, The Mall Galleries, London.
Artist in Residence, A Yorkshire Wolds Community Archaeological Dig in partnership with Historic England.
My first international exhibition in York Gallery, Ghent, Belgium.
I provided the historical research for an exhibition held in the library of Sledmere House with fellow plein air painter Malcolm Ludvigsen.
