I was born in England, descended from a family of artists, and with a few guides along the way, I became a painter in my own right. Since my early twenties I have lived abroad, first in Paris, then in California and now I have returned to France, this time in Provence.
In Los Angeles I was on the faculty of a fine arts school for many years, had private students and also mentored artists at my studio in Santa Monica. I am now offering art sojourns throughout the year in France, but I return to Los Angeles to work with individual artists. I adore France and have explored many regions and beautiful places to paint.
