Seascapes, landscapes and floral paintings in watercolour, oils and mixed media. My paintings are 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 first 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 cottage on the right. Parking is available opposite.






 I have always worked with both watercolour and coloured pencils, but currently I am developing my use of water soluble oils and trying new techniques. These days now that I am a full time artist I can enjoy experimenting and producing more expressive 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 it full time. We are so lucky to live in this area of outstanding natural beauty and I am constantly inspired and compelled to portray it in different ways.

I also offer portraits of bridal bouquets. With a business name of 'Floral Essence' by Sarah Stuart I work from photographs I have been sent to capture the very 'essence' of the bouquet, providing bespoke and beautiful watercolour paintings as lasting wedding keepsakes.
