egg tempera Artist

I am a British-born artist living and working in the western suburbs of Paris.

I create contemporary medieval art, using techniques that have been tried and tested for more than eight hundred years. My original compositions are painstakingly rendered in gold leaf and pigments ground in egg yolk tempera on gessoed wood panels.

I use a decorative and sometimes symbolic style to pick out the grace in natural forms and imbue them with spirituality, and to explore the relationship between man and the forces of nature.
