My Creations

My skills and experience in art have evolved over many years, from being taught how to use oil paints from a very early age, to continually drawing and selling drawings and portraits whilst still at school! I have always experimented in lots of different media… and my variety of work certainly shows this.

As an Art teacher I have been able to show students many different techniques, many which are not shown on this site.

As much as I love to paint in acrylics, I also adore texture, so experimenting with mixed media, collage, threads and stitches is a delight. Take a look at my gallery….

My Inspiration

My inspiration comes from our natural world. I love painting things from nature whether it is a simple apple or a beautiful landscape. I love going for long walks through the British countryside in all weathers taking photos of scenery which will inspire me to paint and create beautiful landscapes. I often visit the same scene at different times of the year and different times of the day to capture different moods. When travelling further afield a painting of the scenery can be much more beautiful than a photograph.

My Illustration creations are inspired from our everyday lives, hobbies and interests. My work can be very detailed with added embellishments too.
