Artist's Profile


I have always liked to draw and paint, but didn't take it up seriously until I was in my early 30's. I attended a local evening class and was very lucky to find a very good and patient teacher. I joined a couple of local art groups and gradually developed my style and interests.

I paint a variety of subjects in pastels, acrylics and watercolour. Through the medium of my art, I try to express the particular mood or feeling that these subjects evoke. Some of my most popular work is the wild flower watercolour  paintings. I also have a love of coastal areas particularly Whitby and the Robin Hood's Bay area of the North Yorkshire coast. I also like to paint the Suffolk coast and I enjoy the challenge of capturing the light and atmosphere of that part of the country. I work mostly from sketches and photographs but I also like to paint in the landscape itself. My abstract paintings are informed by the techniques I use in my figurative paintings. Certain abstract paintings may suggest a landscape or a still life, although the paintings themselves are non -representational. I am constantly revising and looking at fresh approaches to the way I work.

I have exhibited my work at several venues in Nottingham including Patchings Farm Art Centre, The Lace Market Theatre, View from the Top Gallery and local libraries.

I sell my work principally online at ebid, where I list new work regularly throughout the year.
