About

Hampshire based artist with a love for nature.  I am surrounded by woodland which is full of wildlife.  From this I draw my inspiration as well as nature as a whole.  I have always loved Owls and they feature highly in my paintings

I had always wanted to paint in watercolour but never had the opportunity or time until just before I retired from a 25 year teaching career.  Having got to grips with watercolour I also started to enjoy the art of mixed media and I am now branching out into the world of coloured pencils and thoroughly enjoying the experience which I hope shows through in my artwork.  I value my painting days and the feeling of creativity and tranquility they provide. Hopefully looking through my website you will get as much enjoyment from my artwork as I have got from them. There is a little piece of me in each artwork.

I have recently started taking commissions for pet portraits and you can see the diversity under Pet Portraits.

I belong to several local art societies:

Bramshott and Liphook Art & Crafts Society (BLACS)

Petersfield Arts &Crafts Society (PACS)

Haslemere Art Society

Member of the UK Coloured Pencil Society (UKCPS)

Silver Member of the SAA
