After finishing a degree in Graphics and illustration I spent many years designing, drawing and painting in the South of England, Hong Kong, Australia and America. Then I had a family, two active boys!! Next the cake business.

So people in Bristol who have known me as Clifton Cakes for 18 years I would like to let you know that I’ve turned over a new leaf, from running a busy business making cakes, chocolate gifts, running a variety of workshops and a café. Life is now simpler, I have now gone back to my roots, picking up my paint brushes and pencils again, happy days! In the last couple of years I have enjoyed the colours and textures that you can create using oil paints. During this time I have worked in my garden, Devon, Cornwall, Wales, Cumbria, Italy and France. I hope you enjoy this collection
