I realise we all have different ways in which we like to interpret the world around us...mine is always with brightness of colour and I am happiest with a paint brush in my hand.
I paint mostly landscapes, seascapes, birds and flowers using oils or acrylics in abstract colours that to me capture the moment or place.
I am self taught so I'm always learning and developing as I paint.
I love walks along coast lines, through woods or up mountains. As you can see these are the main inspiration for my work.
I studied art at teacher training college and taught for a couple of years before getting married and having three children.
I started painting 6 years ago when my youngest daughter started school full time. I really didn't want to wait the next 30 years before I gave myself the time to paint. I have been so blessed to be able to make some space around family life to do something I love so much.
