As an artist & lover of nature my passion for drawing & painting began at an early age.
After graduating from Berkshire College of Art & Design, I pursued a 30 year career in creative design. Having retired from the corporate world, I embarked on a new venture & opened my art studio at home where I enjoy creating original commissioned artworks as well as self-inspired works for sale on my website. The inspirations for my paintings come from my love of animals, gardening & rambling throughout the countryside. I love experimenting with multiple mediums inc. watercolours, oils & acrylics; often combining mediums to create more depth & vibrancy to my compositions. Painting for me is all about capturing the natural beauty of life which surrounds us everywhere, everyday. If we blink we might miss it, but when we capture it on canvas we can stop, ponder & soak it in.
My compositions evolve organically as I paint many stages adding several layers to bring them to life. As an artist, sometimes it's hard to put the paint brush down & say “It's finished “, but I abide by these wise words:
"A painting is never finished - it simply stops in interesting places".
My art studio is located in the village of Ecchinswell, nestled in the heart of Watership Down, which is best known as the setting for Richard Adams' novel titled "Watership Down".
I hope you enjoy browsing through my website & I look forward to welcoming you to my art studio where I will be selling original work & limited edition prints. I will also be selling some of my plants from my garden too. There are some beautiful walks close by, a welcoming pub with a large garden & great food.
If you are interested in any of my artworks for sale or would like to commission a painting, please contact me.
