I am a felt maker and abstract painter. I have owned and managed Happy Planet Studio and Gallery in Whitley Bay since 2014. The business is a social enterprise that promotes and sells the work of thirty local artists, as well as offering a range of creative workshops to help others embrace their own creativity for enjoyment and well being.
I have a painting studio in North Shields, situated inside East Street Arts, within the Beacon shopping centre in North Shields. Happy Planet is open Wednesday - Saturday 9-5 and Sunday 10-4. I tend to spend Monday & Tuesday in my studio, with visitors welcome by arrangement.
Most of my paintings have a narrative and you can find those in the gallery section of my website. I don't envisage making prints of my work, I enjoy painting because it challenges and frees me.
