My current projects include gardens, seascapes and landscapes. The flower paintings reflect my enduring love of gardens and gardening. Flowers are a constant joy to so many of us whether they are blooms in a beautiful herbaceous border or wild flowers. The new seascapes and landscapes are a further development of an ongoing project on reflections and sunlight on the natural environment. Watership Down, Ladle Hill, the river Enborne at Headley, the Wayfarers Walk and the Dorset coast are just some of the places that have inspired my work.
A lifelong love of art led me to a History of Art degree at Reading University which gave me the confidence to experiment with new ways of painting. Subsequent painting courses in life, landscape and still life have been challenging and inspirational and have helped to develop a personal style.
I like to mix different media but generally work in acrylics, watercolours, gouache, or pastels with some collage.
