Many years ago I obtained a Degree in Textile Design at Loughborough College of Art. Over time I have realized my true passion is for painting whilst still retaining an element of design and pattern.
I would describe myself as a colourist and painter of contemporary impressionist landscapes and florals. I’m inspired by my natural surroundings and most recently, the stunning Kent coastline with its evocative white cliffs.
I tend to work spontaneously allowing the painting to evolve as I go along. I was once told that no work in progress is precious and therefore I am never frightened of taking risks. Some of my most successful pieces of work have resulted from throwing caution to to wind and seeing what happens next! That way there is always the excitement of the unknown as the painting evolves.
