My art is based around sketching on location in order to create a gestural and expressive piece of work. All of the images displayed in the Gallery and on my website were drawn from real life in my sketchbooks.
2019 has been an exciting year for me. I was honoured to be asked become the first artist-in-residence for National Flash Fiction Day. As part of my residency I created the social media images, the artwork on the front cover of the annual anthology and I provided visual prompts for the online Write-In. NFFD aims to celebrate and promote flash fiction via workshops, an annual anthology and events both online and off. This year NFFD takes place at The Herbert Museum and Art Gallery in Coventry on Sat 15th June 2019.
One of my sketches (with added digital colour) features on the cover of Diane Simmons’s debut flash fiction collection published by the award winning Ad Hoc Fiction. It was a delight to see Finding A Way shortlisted for Best Short Story Collection in the 2019 Saboteur Awards.
The gallery below shows a selection of my art.

Some of my sketches on my website have been ‘cleaned up’ to remove the gutter markings, but all of the images are as I drew them on the day.
