About Me

I’ve been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. I love art….actually it soothes my soul…..and I can think of nothing better than losing myself for hours at a time painting away.

I mainly paint in watercolours and acrylics and often switch between the two, depending on the subject matter which I find for me can dictate the medium. I am also fascinated by mixed media and the endless opportunities it creates. Occasionally I will work in oils but I always feel drawn back to watercolours and acrylics.

My subject matter is mainly landscapes, seascapes and nature with a still life thrown in every now and then. And when I am not painting I use my camera to make art along with other arts and crafts.

Illustration is fast becoming a passion for me and I am currently developing this side of my creativity with the aim of writing and illustrating a children’s book.

So this site is about my art, my photography, my creative life and other bits and bobs. Thank you so much for stopping by and I would love to hear from you if you fancy dropping me a line!
