I was born in London and now live in Oxford. My poems are inspired by nature and time while my paintings are mainly concerned with my interest in colour and tone. I have an Instagram page where I post my paintings regularly.
In 2020 and 2021 my poems were long-listed in the National Poetry Competition (UK). In 2020 they were published in the Ver Poets prize winners’ anthology and 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.
