I work from my studio in the heart of a peaceful Norfolk village, surrounded by fields and big skies.
My pictures 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 childrens' picture book illustrator. 'Jamil's Clever Cat,' French/Newby is still in print and forms part of the National Curriculum literacy scheme. ' The Times' decribed 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.
