I was born in London and now live in Oxford. My poems are inspired by nature and the fluctuating quality of time while my paintings are mainly concerned with my interest in colour and tone. I have an Instagram page where I post my work regularly.
In 2020 my poems were long-listed in the National Poetry Competition (UK), published in the Ver Poets prize winners’ anthology and published twice in The Spectator. In 2019 I was the winner of The Frogmore Prize and my winning poem was published in The Frogmore Papers. I have also been a runner up in the Cardiff International Poetry Competition and the Poetry on the Lake Competition.
In 2019 I was invited through Instagram to write several poems as part of an exhibition by American mixed media artist Melissa Rubin at the Atlantic Gallery in Manhattan.
I’m a member of Oxford Art Society and exhibit with them regularly.
My novel The Latecomer (Random House, 1997) was a winner of a Betty Trask Award.
