I come from a family of artists and creators and got ever more serious about my own art as my children became independent. I am an art materials junkie and just love to experiment with new media and techniques although I always return to my first love which is oil paint. I live and work on the Hampshire/Surrey/Berkshire border and show and sell my work locally. My primary discipline is working from life, both with models, still life and in nature but in these lockdown times I have been exploring acrylic abstracts. Paint, pigment, oil, graphite, wax, ink, paper, canvas, wood, water; creativity is the best route to my happy place.
