About The Tutor

Qualifications:
B.Ed Art and Education, London University Diploma History of Art

Profile:
I am a practicing artist and teacher who enjoys sharing my enthusiasm for painting with students. I have worked as an art adult education tutor for 12 years.

I aim to share my impressions of the environment using heightened colour, contemporary paint effects and texture. I often draw and paint 'plein aire' and record landscapes I've lived in or travelled through and enjoyed. I use a range of mixed media including oils, watercolour, acrylics and ink. My work is concerned with atmosphere, light, colour and texture.

I work from studios in Twickenham and Catalonia and have exhibited in London, Paris, and Barcelona.

Successes include:
Illustrations for a Spanish children's book.
Paintings hung in several London hospitals.
A painting selected for B.B.C. Radio 4 and the Artist Programme and Gallery.
A painting in the BBC Watercolour Challenge Book.
Twickenham Art Society Price for best watercolour in annual exhibition 2008.
