Chemical Engineering & Art
I am a chartered chemical engineer and artist, who is passionate about the combination of art and science. During my career I have designed and managed complex engineering projects, which often required my creative skills to make quick decisions to innovate a solution, optimise a process or to make a process safe. I now empower other people to strengthen their creative skills so that they can discover more of their capabilities and in the case of our creative workshops for business, reapply these skills in the workplace.
For me, oil painting is a journey. The diversity of oils are such that you can almost sculpt with them or thin them so they flow like watercolours. Oil painting is a layering of stages, I visualise the end composition, and work my way step by step, inspecting and exploring each detail. There are so many variables to consider. The shapes, textures and movement of each component. The volume, pressure, speed of my paint and brushstrokes. To see some of my results, explore My Gallery.
Logistics & Creative Writing
I am a senior logistics professional with over 20 years experience in commercial and operations roles within the food and pharmaceutical sectors. Managing complex supply chains for customers, including Waitrose, Morrisons and Brakes.
I have a passion for providing excellent customer service and building solutions to exceed expectations, whilst ensuring key performance measures are achieved.
My interest in creative writing began whilst working in a consultancy business, finding ways to connect with customers and demonstrate value through the power of words.
