my art interest started at an early age strongly encouraged by my father, himself an accomplished artist in many media.
I was fortunate as a young artist in 1982 to be accepted to exhibit at the Mall Galleries at The National Children’s Art Exhibition sponsored by Sir Adrian Cadbury, where I was awarded “Highly Commended” for my watercolour still life.
After a dormant period busy raising a family and following my working career, my art interest was rekindled in 2013 during a period of convalescence. My rejuvenated interest has brought exciting new challenges and directions including discovering life study, a variety of mediums and the joy of collaborating with other artists
My constant preference remains watercolour but I love to explore other mediums including working in pastel, oils and acrylics paints which also bring me great pleasure. Attending workshops and masterclasses is a great way of focusing on my artistic development and working alongside other artists is very motivating.
I am inspired by my travels with my family. I have a particular fascination with light and reflection especially water and my current passion is capturing movement and reflection in a two dimensional form. My constant battle is to avoid overworking and the temptation to reproduce reality rather than create a new interpretation of my subject.
I have participated in the Bucks Open Studios art trail and exhibit my work in the UK and France. A selection of my paintings is on display at the Vitreus Art Gallery in Potterspury, near Towcester.
I hope that you enjoy my work, do take time to send comments I would love to hear from you. I am happy to take commissions.
