Tranquil Views of Hope

About me

I have been working as a visual artist for about twelve years, and have had five solo exhibitions as well as participating in group exhibitions.  Previously I worked as an assistant landscape architect and in horticultural administration as well as in other employment.

I graduated in Geography combined with Biology from the University of Sussex, and later studied Landscape Design at the University of Sheffield. I have also studied at lots of part-time art courses in Hampshire.

I am single, heterosexual and I have never been married.  I am a Christian and my interests include reading and walking.

I have had lots of evidence that I have an identical twin or double, who looks virtually exactly the same as me, and impersonates me, and people think she is me.

Environmental Statement.

I campaign to help the natural world and seek to reduce any negative environmental impacts of my visual art.

Some of my art (past and planned) was and will be created partly to raise awareness of environmental issues and recent, current and planned work also includes old domestic or reused material.

All of the electricity (I don't have gas) to supply my studio/maisonette is from renewable energy - energy obtained from the wind and sun.

I seek to conserve resources and use green alternatives in some cases, for example I use oil paint brush cleaner made from oranges, and sell postcards made from recycled paper.

I try to get greener photograph paper, ideally PEFC2 but sometimes FSC, and now try to provide statements about recyclability on cards made from photograph paper.

I aim to get frames that are FSC wood or relatively environmental if other materials.

I often reuse paper and card and often reuse food containers for paint mixing.

I haven't flown for almost 16 years, partly for environmental reasons.

I've also gone vegan: for the environment; to help feed the world's poorer people; and for the animals (also good for health).
