What makes this gallery unique is the way that art is presented. All too often galleries are vast, hanger-like spaces with artwork highlighted with bright spotlights and hung on dazzling white,sterile walls. This, for many people, is an unfamiliar space that feels cold and unwelcoming. The Bleach House Gallery, on the other hand, is the only gallery in the area that integrates art and design into beautiful, contemporary room sets, to show off the work in a real context.

This site contains a selection of my work over past years. It will be updated regularly as new photographs become available (new work there always is). My panels are pictures painted with glazes andoxides, fired on unglazed tiles. They are not designs - each one is site specific and individual - but they may act as indicators for you if you think of commissioning work. Sunlight and water add to these paintings. Some are suitable for external use, some for floors.
