Thank you for taking an interest in my work and hope you enjoy the website. I have specialised in an unusual monoprint method of hand painting which I experimented with at college and have spent over 30 years developing. Each piece is painted by me but, unlike other methods of hand painting, this technique allows me the freedom to achieve a paint-brush mark. This, I think, typifies all of my designs which are controlled yet painterly and, I hope, retain the joy and spontaneity I feel when I am painting them.
Source material for designs varies tremendously from the work of artists such as Hundertwasser, Klimt and Klee to celtic patterning and illuminated manuscripts or simply my garden. Over the years I have produced special designs for bodies such as The National Trust, Yorkshire Dales National Park, Lady Lever Art Gallery, The Walker Art Gallery and Friends of The Whitworth Art Gallery.
My studio, which is open to the public Tuesday to Sunday is at Cedar Farm in Mawdesley, Lancashire L40 3SY
Hope you have fun looking at my designs and products!
