About the Artist…

Me & cottage

I grew up around the beautiful Malvern Hills and Cotswold countryside, so I’ve always been surrounded and inspired by the natural world.

Now, years later, I happily find myself with an amazing supply of nature and wildlife subjects, for me to study, draw and paint....right on my Devon cottage door step, which is on the edge of the beautiful Exmoor’s National Parkland.

Most days, you will usually find me, in my little cottage, drawing and designing new idea’s for my painting.
On fine, and sunny days, my favourite thing is to walk along the country lanes, and woodland paths near me, making sketches and mental notes of…all the wildflowers and animals around the hedgerows and try and seek out the elusive red fox, that often dashes out across my path!
When i get back home, all these sketches and notes, will offer me the perfect ingredients for some new paintings..


On my table

I love to capture the beauty within nature that lies between the realistic and imagination.
By painting and designing in my own ‘naturalistic realism’ style, and drawing on my love of the beautiful period of Renaissance art…..by enriching and illuminating my watercolour paintings…with gold and silver leaf and pigments.
