I am an artist based in Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds. Art is my passion – I wake up thinking about it and I go to bed thinking about it. My work is influenced by my strong love of nature and the world around me. I take my inspiration from my walking and the inner peace and contentment it gives me. I love nothing more than being out in the open air taking in my surroundings: our beautiful countryside with its changing seasons, the mood and atmosphere of our weather, our rugged seascapes and magical skies which all make up nature's tapestries.
My pieces come to life by combining the use of my own photographs, sketching, a bit of imagination, and a wealth of artistic licence. I work in most mediums depending about my painting. My current favourite is mixed media, using ink with the paint, which has given me the freedom to push through my comfort zone and make my work more expressive.
