I work in partnerhip with my Husband Dave who is a Professional Photographer to produce  prints, cards and giftware from my original paintings.


About

I have drawn and painted for as long as I can remember, my school exercise books were always covered with biro drawings, much to the annoyance of my teachers! I love bright colours and enjoy using acrylics, oil based paints and resin to create some unusual abstract effects.

Although I’ve always loved to paint, I also studied interior design for a number of years before deciding to concentrate solely on my art. Exploring the work of other artists made me realise that I wanted to develop my own unique style. This led to several years of studying, experimenting with different mediums and having some ˜happy accidents”, which resulted in the work that I am currently producing. I became a professional artist in 2010.

Much of my work is inspired by the landscape and I try to add my own unique twists to produce paintings that are sometimes a little surreal. Moving to The Isle of Wight in the summer of 2017 proved to be incredibly inspirational!

My sports paintings evolved from a childhood love of horses and from watching ˜Le Tour de France” on television whilst expecting my Daughter. I’m always exploring new subjects that will exploit this technique.

I am a Professional Associate of The SAA and have written two articles for their magazine ˜Paint”, also being a brand ambassador for Pebeo paint on their behalf. Three of my paintings were shortlisted for the first Pebeo Mixed Media competition resulting in an exhibition at The A & D Gallery in Marylebone. I was  delighted to have an artwork displayed and sold in The Oxo Tower Wharf Gallery as part of “The Letter in Mind” exhibition for The National Brain Charity, this years submission has also been accepted.

I work in Parnership with my Husban Dave who is a Professional Photographer, we exhibit at shows throughout the year both on The Island and the mainland including The Garlic Festival and The Chale Show.

I am also represented by West Wight Framing in Yarmouth on The Isle of Wight where I have prints and original paintings for sale. A selection of my work is also available at The Frame Gallery, Odiham in Berkshire.
