I have been visiting Staithes all my life and have family associations that go back even further. I exhibit in Staithes Gallery and have been part of the weekend painting school. I love to paint around Staithes at every opportunity and have a particular love of the boats. I am a member of the prestigious Peak District Artisans and exhibit around Derbyshire and North Yorkshire I run Worshops for the Chatsworth Estate.
