About The Artist:

   

 

Ever since I can remember I have always loved messing about with paints. My art training was at Chester College of Art( foundation) & Nottingham Trent University (BA Hons degree) where I specialised in printed textile design. After College I set up a retail business in Nottingham with a College friend where we designed & hand printed fabrics, made them into clothes & soft furnishings & sold them in our shop under the name of “CIRCUS Prints”.

I now live in the small village of Fen Drayton in Cambridgeshire. I have a lovely light sunny studio where I can concentrate on my love of watercolour painting. I have a passion for colour, the luminosity & vibrancy is reflected in my work. I love to let the colours blend & mix together on the watercolour paper giving that element of surprise & looseness.

Flowers have always been inspirational for me. You will often find me with a sketchpad and camera in the garden on bright sunny days capturing the vibrant petals of the Delphiniums & Hollyhocks or the bees on the Echinacea. These are the perfect subject matter for my paintings. I also enjoy painting landscapes, particularly around the nature reserve where I live and a trip to Venice provided a wealth of inspiration for me to explore.

My paintings can be seen in exhibitions around East Anglia. I am a member of the Cambridge Drawing Society, the Society of East Anglian Watercolourists & Cambridge Open Studios with whom I plan to open the doors of my studio this summer (14/15 July & 21/22 July).
Cards & limited edition prints are available depicting many of my watercolour paintings. I welcome commissions & hold painting workshops on a regular basis.
