Interests

I absolutely love nature, animals and being outside and I'm at my happiest with a blank piece of paper and a paintbrush in hand.
Lots of my inspiration comes from my grandchildren who draw such cute pictures, I often use their ideas and take it up a notch.

Skills and Techniques

Whilst convalescing after breast cancer my daughter came around to visit with a set of watercolour paints to clear me up. She said "let's have a go" even though we had never painted with watercolours before.
Several muddy looking paintings later I was determined to learn to paint with watercolours. In fact I made it my mission. I devised my own way as any instructions really didn't help.
To this day I now give watercolour lessons in my studio and have well over 7,500 followers on my Facebook page! Which still amazes me.

My passion is watercolours. For as long as I can remember I've used art to express my ideas, inspired by the world around me. I work in my brick and wood built studio at the bottom of the garden, newly extended to include a printing studio. With a bright rainbow coloured theme and freshly painted walls. My little hideaway is full of all the wonderful quirky and colourful pieces of handcrafted art I love to collect. I sit at my old oak drawing desk, a 1950s school desk with my fathers victorian mahogony chair. I'm inspired by the foxes, badgers, birds and friendly squirrells that frequent the garden while I scribble away at new ideas in my studio.

Everything is handmade by me, I sketch my ideas onto quality watercolour paper, using my favourite fine liner to outline my design once I'm happy with it. I then use the best quality watercolour paints, adding last minuite details, such as grass, flowers and shrubbary to bring my little scenes to life.
