My brother Paul and I guarantee a warm welcome to our Artweeks 2023 exhibition. Come and see our recent works in my light and airy garden gallery. (Access - two steps up into the gallery space from the garden).
I paint birds, foxes, trees and maps. I love colour and life! This year I have been inspired by Ukrainian folk art.
You'll enjoy observation & imagination, colour & calm, light & shade. As well as original works of art, we have signed prints, greetings cards, tea towels, jigsaw puzzles, and other goodies available.
Come and hang out with us - have a cuppa in the gazebo, enjoy my beautiful garden, and check out the pond full of tadpoles.
Easy parking | Space to tether horses | Very well behaved doggies only thanks, as we have two cats on site.
I make colourful, vibrant paintings inspired mostly by wondrous things from the natural world - birds, animals, trees, landscape, anything that takes my fancy. I’m unfeasibly fond of maps.
I was born in Stratford-upon-Avon and travelled widely before coming to study in Oxford decades ago. I made Oxfordshire my home and have been here every since. I taught myself to paint in my 30s. My ‘natural’ medium is watercolour, but I also use gouache, acrylics, acrylic inks, and printmaking using the drypoint technique. I especially admire van Gogh, Gauguin, Hockney, Matisse, and 17th century Dutch and Flemish artists.
For more than a decade, I have been hand-drawing and hand-painting maps. In 2016 I won a prestigious award from the British Cartographic Society for my map of the Shipping Forecast. In October 2021 'Bird Migration Map' was featured on the BBC's Autumnwatch!
