I have been painting since I was a young girl & love to use various mediums including, watercolour, inks and acrylics and oils. I feel my approach is fresh & free flowing, Painting for me is about passion and the ability to express my feelings through colour and imagination I love to paint to music and listen to various genres especially 60’s & 70’s Soul & Pop. I also draw inspiration from my surroundings, living in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park has given me a great love of the country side and the flora & fauna that surrounds me, I especially enjoy the abundance of wild flowers in the Spring & Summer. The ever changing scenery and colours even in Autumn and Winter influences my colour palette and ideas for my next project.
I love to teach and I host several watercolour classes and take genuine satisfaction from seeing my classes grow and improve their own skills through dedication and hard work.
I enjoy working with various textures and methods and always embrace new ideas, working intuitively and naturally, splashing paint onto a canvas and losing myself in the moment to create unique pieces that I hope people enjoy and take as much pleasure from them as I have producing them. I exhibit my paintings in several galleries and have works travel as far as Canada & Australia.
