A little bit about me

I am an enthusiastic artist.  Big, bright and bold is my style; I can’t seem to tone it down really, in fact I'm getting slightly too exuberant occasionally.

I enjoy experimenting with unconventional combinations and creating the unexpected. I believe all colours go together. My motto is, it really is:  

...don't be afraid to experiment.  It's not brain surgery - no-one will die!

I paint in both acrylics and watercolours.  I switch between the two depending on the theme and my mood. The acrylic art is usually larger than the watercolour paintings. The dog portraits are always in watercolour as I find this the best medium to capture that 'certain something' in their character. Although self-taught, I'm constantly researching and practising new techniques.

I sell my work directly or through selective galleries on my Contact page.  Please contact me if you need to source a painting you are interested in.

I live at home with my husband, and have two grown-up children.  A scientist by training, I stopped working when they were young and have totally enjoyed, and am still enjoying, my busy life.
