Description

Seascapes, landscapes and floral paintings in watercolour and oils. Inspired mainly by the beauty of the Southwest Wight, Originals, limited edition prints and fine art cards.

My studio is always open, but please ring or send me an email to check that I will be in. To find me head out of Brighstone either on Upper Lane or Moortown Lane into Lynch Lane. After you pass the Lane to Coombe farm on the right, we are the next house on the left after Bon Sol farm. Lynch Lane also starts at the crossroads in Calbourne with the Sun Inn opposite. Follow the road through the woods and over the downs to the Welcome to Brighstone sign, and I am the fourth house on the right.

 

 

 

 


About

 I have always worked mainly in watercolour and watercolour pencils, but currently I am developing my use of oils. I am enjoying experimenting and producing semi-abstract works in contrast to my highly detailed floral pieces which evolve very slowly.

Whichever medium, I try to capture the atmosphere and essence of places and things that I love.

I grew up on the Island and left school to attend art college in Southampton, but somehow ended up with a career in Biological Sciences instead of the Arts! For many years I produced no art at all. But when I moved back to the West Wight with my young family I finally had the opportunity to return to art.. We are so lucky to live in this area of outstanding natural beauty and I am constantly inspired by my surroundings. I feel compelled to portray it in different ways.

I also offer portraits of bridal bouquets. With the name 'Floral Essence' I work from photographs to capture the 'essence' of the bouquet, providing bespoke and beautiful watercolour paintings as wedding keepsakes.
