I have been painting ever since I can remember, beginning with oils and ‘poster paints’. I have painted in most mediums, including acrylics and on-glaze bone china and porcelain. My favourite medium these days is watercolour, particularly transparent colour as I love its freshness and vibrancy. I enjoy ‘traditional’ landscape scenes but I’m also very interested in creating pattern and textural effects and experimenting with semi-abstract themes.
My favourite subjects are landscape, flowers and animals. I have recently had paintings selected for major exhibitions including the 2012 Artist and Leisure Painter magazine annual Open Exhibition at Patchings Art Centre, Nottingham and the Royal Society of Marine Artists Exhibition at the prestigious Mall Galleries, London. I have been honoured to have work chosen several times for publication in the Paint magazine and several times as ‘Image of the Month’ on the Painters Online website. I have just been juried (Jan 2014) through the first round of the World watercolour Exhibition. I currently teach watercolours at the Artstyle Galleryshop, Orpington and in Otford, Kent and I tutor workshops and painting holidays.
