I have painted since I was a child always using strong colours to portray my subject matter. My Grandmother worked in oils and my Mother drew mainly horses, her choice of medium was charcoal and graphite, so I guess you could say painting is in my blood.
I am inspired mainly by nature and animals and love to use a range of mediums to reflect this. I am mostly self-taught and over the years attended many workshops and classes to improve my knowledge and technique. At the ripe old age of 50 I decided to embark on a full time 3 year Creative Arts and Design degree with Oxford Brookes. I have been running an Art Group in Lydiard Millicent, Wiltshire for around 8 years and enjoyed passing on my enthusiasm and knowledge to encourage others to paint. I was on the committee for several years with the Purton Art Society and a member of the Wiltshire Guild of Artists.
I enjoy painting in pastels, watercolour, ink and mixed media, always ready to experiment, thinking outside the box to create something different. I have some experience in the mounting and framing process which I love to use to complete the character of the finished picture .
