The first public display of my work was my picture of "A little girl in welliebobs". It was featured on a local TV programme, when I was only 8. As I grew older, my art turned into an obsessive hobbyand eventually, spurred on by friends and family, I've started to sell prints of my work. My paintings are "moments" and "memories" stored in my head, painted from memory, that make me smile. I want to share them and make others smile too.

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.

Welcome to Artroom Gallery - a contemporary art and craft gallery specialising in local and UK art and craft. Situated in the picturesque market town of Garstang, Lancashire, nestling below theBowland Fells, this charming gallery specialises in original art and craft. Artroom Gallery was established in September 2007 with the aim of highlighting talented UK artists and designer-makers, giving the public the opportunity to purchase special, unique, hand - crafted artworks.
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.
Nestled on the borders of Lancashire, North Yorkshire and Cumbria, halfway between Lancaster and Kendal and only 10 minutes drive from the popular tourist town of Kirkby Lonsdale, lies Stonegate GlassStudio and Gallery. The Gallery is set in an 18th century barn in the heart of the quiet village of Low Bentham, popular with walkers for beautiful views and tranquil riverside walks.

This form of art reveals expression, detail, feeling and above all colour, which to me is one of the most important aspects of this art form. The colours used are spirit colour and the main ingredientis shellac with which the boards are given many coats. I was a French polisher and antique restorer, having learnt the trade from my late father, so the use of these materials has come as second nature to me.
