I have always been drawn into painting, but my interest in Art changed dramatically twenty years ago, when I became involved in the use of art therapy working with young people with educational needs.

 In 2013 I exhibited successfully for the first time, and have continued to do so.  I particularly enjoy showing my work in an environment where I am able to meet the public and discuss aspects of not only my work but art in general.

My work captures the world around me, family, friends, nature, scenery – I love being able to put what I see and feel onto paper or canvas, and watching a picture evolve.

Growing as an artist is very exciting. I love bold colours, and the natural world always inspires me. With this I mind I’ve ventured into looser, abstract and mixed media styles. 

Fun liquid Art workshops now available, please contact me for details.
