About

After a successful career in Fashion, 10 years ago my young family and I decided to re-locate to the Isle of Wight, where my partner and I opened a boutique wine shop called Wine Therapy in Cowes, a new chapter of my life began! 

Having spent years following various Island-baded artists and viewing/purchasing their works via Open Studios and other local galleries, a few years ago I finally felt the time had come to try painting for myself. After a couple of lessons with a friend who's a well-respected local artist, I had the confidence to dive in and have a go at painting some of the beautiful scenery I'd spent years photographing. I discovered the enjoyment of working with oils on canvas boards and have been fortunate enought to have the kind permission of some local photographers to base a few of my works on their pictures. 

I find myself particularly drawn to water and sea-scapes, I love the way light plays on the surface, and, being located on the coast, there are usually some boats involved in my compositions too!
