About me

I am a professional artist, photographer and art teacher based in East Sussex.

I have a selection of prints available  at Saatchi Online

I love all aspects of art and design and look to constantly challenge and enhance my knowledge and skills. My own work takes many formats; I look at the everyday, at life and how I and other people live it and use all of this to create my art – I love collaborations and discussion. My recent paintings have been developed whilst looking at the theory of the role of painting as a process as well as material.

In 2017 I start The Arts School. I predominantly teach observational drawing and painting, aiming to help people start, develop existing skills, or helping artists to loosen their practise, or reengage.


I teach the wide-ranging subject of Fine Art in schools and colleges including drawing, painting, mixed media, printmaking, portfolio development, illustration and graphic design. 2014 marked my 10th year teaching further education and leisure courses.

I have taught on, and run, BTEC level 2 and 3 subsidiary and extended diploma in Graphics and Art and Design, A level photography and Art and Design, Access to HE in Art and Design and special needs and leisure courses including Gallery Studies and Life Drawing.

I am also a professional event photographer, having many years experience capturing the excitement and beauty of weddings and similar amazing occasions.

    Thanks Sophie for visiting 20/20 Hines Sight and the follow. I really like your work. I’m not even sure where to began with what I like, but the photo of the peacock sold me right away. Keep up the good work and I’ll be back to see what you’re up to.

    Lovely to meet you Sophie and I hope the move to the country is filling the soul. Remember j=holidays down near Chichester and the Witterings, but that is West Sussex I feel. Just came on over to say many thanks for the follow on my own site as it is greatly appreciated and you are warmly welcomed aboard. Quite an honour having someone stick on a follow with your background. 😃 Allow me to tour more of your own work, MM / John 🍀

    Thanks for stopping by on my blog. Sorry that most of it is in Dutch, but the pictures will speak for themselves I guess. I will be back to have a good look at your work.
