About Me

I work from my studio in the heart of a peaceful Norfolk village, surrounded by fields and big skies.
My paintings are mostly acrylic collage, composed entirely of my own hand-painted material.
I love colour, texture and the unusual. Experimenting with new ideas helps me to achieve  some exciting results, usually by design, quite often by accident!
I tend to be drawn towards natural subjects, being constantly amazed by their beauty.
I am also a published children's picture book illustrator. 'Jamil's Clever Cat,' French/Newby is still in print and forms part of the National Curriculum literacy scheme. ' The Times' described the illustrations as "gorgeous."
I hope the joy that painting gives me is passed on in some way to the people who look at my work.

    Just this morning walked around the display at the forum library in Norwich. I looked at all of your work there and I must say it was amazing. I loved the fishing boat. I rarely see any work by artists that are not afraid to use so much color!!
    I’ve got my eye on one of the chameleon prints I found here.
    Absolutely amazing.
