ABOUT ME

Trained in graphic design, I have spent my working life in the advertising industry. As a lover of all things art & craft I have been creative from a young age, and can’t remember a time when I didn’t have a pencil or scissors in my hands!

I am best known for my pastel landscape paintings, but enjoy working on different subjects and in a variety of mediums. I have been told I have a sensitive approach to my paintings, yet find my style is evolving since experimenting with different methods to my work, becoming looser and more energetic. More recently I have been using collage in my paintings, a process which I find extremely enjoyable and therapeutic.

Fascinated by rolling landscapes and turquoise seas, I never tire of the views and am always on the lookout for my next project. I love to see the sunlight dancing on water, or filtering through the clouds in contrast to the backdrop of a stormy sky. I am permanently in awe of the beauty of nature and like to capture that essence in my paintings.

In more recent times I have also have reconnected with my passion for crafting, revisiting many forgotten skills from my past. After been gifted a pyrography tool set, wood-burning has become my latest passion. With the knowledge I have gained in this discipline I can now apply this skill to create various wooden items, including pet portraits, hanging plaques and other nature-themed gifts.

Being a member of a local art group has allowed me to be more expressive and given me permission to be myself, to be amongst like-minded friends each week has made the world of difference to my art.
