Colour is at the heart of my paintings creating mood, movement, light and texture. I work in an expressive way responding to the environment passionately in my landscapes.
I studied at The RWA in Bristol where I also did Art foundation and then fashion/textiles BA Hons at Gloscat. Working as an illustrator, designer, colourist and painter, I set up Darch and Duff with a friend in 1998 and enjoyed running the shops and establishing myself as In-house artist for 18 years.
Now I paint landscapes, houses and children’s illustrations from my studio at home. I work in mixed media, watercolour and pastel.
