About button

For more than twenty years I worked as a healthcare professional in Psychiatry and then in General Nursing. In parallel, I always maintained my studies in painting, printmaking and various other art disciplines. In 1995 I took the decision to leave a very successful career with the Management Executive of the Department of Health in order to pursue full time art education. I trained at Eastbourne School of Visual and Performing Arts and at the University of Brighton where I gained a BA (hons) in Fine Art: Painting and a PhD in Art Historical and Critical Studies.

I now live in Eastbourne on the South Coast of England where I also have my studio. My experience of working within the field of psychology, psychoanalysis, and with those suffering physical illness, has frequently fed into my work. The majority of paintings shown here have, for instance, focused on the theme of memory.

Through my PhD studies, and professional work in the area of public monuments and sculpture, I have developed a particular interest in cultural memory as manifested through processions, parades and festivals. In my studio practice I am currently engaged in exploring ideas surrounding the localisation of narratives and memories through the material constituents of cultural memory such as banners, souvenirs and markers on the landscape.

My paintings have been purchased for public, corporate, and private collections both in England , Italy , Brazil and Mexico . These include American Express, Brighton, the Council for Professions Supplementary to Medicine, London , the City Council of Castel Bolognese, Italy and the Museum of Modern Art , Faenza , Italy .
