About the Event

After painting furiously as a teen, I trained as an occupational therapist and kept painting as a  second profession.   As a painter I  am interested in: the landscape as psychology/psychological backdrop;  the fragility of children and teenagers; themes around  engagement/disengagement in activities; abandoned/historical  play and leisure environments. These painting themes somehow reflect my  career in  both occupational therapy and coaching. Although it might  sound like a strange mix, all these disciplines have a creative heart  and believe in the potential for human beings  to live engaged, meaningful lives.

In  recent years I have  published texts on creativity and coaching and in  2018 I won Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the year, with a prize  commission for the Imperial War Museum - it's  been a busy few years!
