Welcome to my website
I am a fine art photographer, acrylic artist and visual storyteller. I create art that you will enjoy having in your home as fine art prints or on interior decor products. I also design greeting cards that will bring a smile to the face of the receiver. I am a keen storyteller and write a blog including my thoughts on art, living in Italy and various short stories – welcome to my world.
My Artistic Focus
I specialize in photo art using my own photographs. I work from the heart so all pieces are developed with a little piece of me. Energy in colour, they provide a positive mood enhancer in any room in which they hang. But I don’t just have wall decor available for sale, some of my work is available on a range of interior decor and personal products too.
My art covers a range of subjects. It reflects my early years in Brighton in the UK, my life now in Italy, the countryside and my love for animals. I enjoy creating floral art and showing you the beauty of Umbria in Italy where I live. As a Buddhist, my work also often has a spiritual aspect.
I have won several awards including Best Photopainter 2015 by CQ Magazine and Special Merit and Special Recognition Awards from the Light Space & Time Online Gallery in 2016, 2017 and 2018. I was an Artsy Shark featured artist in August 2016.
Sometimes my work is a large statement about something. Other times it is expressing my joy of life. Yet other times it may be just my pleasure in capturing an image of a tiny spider web hidden in tall grass. Or the smile on the face of my cat and model Stevie Mouse.
I hope you find something you like in my work and writing.
