As a self taught watercolour artist I have spent many happy years learning my craft, it’s been a journey adding to my skill set and defining my own personal ‘style’.
This site reflects that style. Best described as wet-on-wet free flowing watercolour painting. Flowers are my painting passion, with their infinite variety of colours, form and textures. In addition I have also completed several oil based flower paintings in a similar impressionistic style.
Living in the Yorkshire Dales I am constantly inspired with new ideas for paintings from the natural world that surrounds me in this beautiful part of the world in which I am fortunate enough to live.
My love for flowers, the colour, the vibrancy and my style of free flow watercolour painting gives an impressionistic look to my work.
Moving forward I have added a three dimensional aspects to my several of my new pieces, incorporating fabric painting, machine embroidery, adding of fabrics and embellishments, the effect is quite amazing.
I am also inspired by my love of the sea, painting bold and powerful seascapes in an impressionistic style.
This year I can also be seen in a one woman exhibition alongside a flower arranging day near York and also showing my work later in the year in a local art shop.
