About

Born and bred on the Island, my husband and I returned in 2005, where I could indulge my love of painting our wonderful Island landscapes and flower meadows.

I am a member of the Isle of Wight Art Club, where I sit on the Council as Newsletter Editor plus Exhibition sub committee. I also attend Cowes Art Group, where I have been awarded "Favourite Picture" voted by the public at our Cowes Week Summer Exhibition on several occasions.

This year, as well as Open Sudios on the last weekend of July at Gurnard Village Hall, I will also be Âexhibiting around the Cowes area with CAG and Quarr Abbey with IWAC, I will hopefully exhibit with the West Wight Painting Circle and "Landscapes of the Isle of Wight" competition at Ventnor Botanic Gardens in early October, where I have been twice awarded Highly Commended.

My work is mainly in Watercolour and Oil, with some Acrylics, but I do like experimenting with other media to keep my ideas fresh. I like to capture the atmosphere of all the seasons and the light on our amazing Island. My paintings make excellent cards and prints which are professionally produced, and my paintings are in collections on the mainland, France, Chicago, California and Washington State.Â
