Growing up in Constable country surrounded by stunning scenery and animals I loved to draw and paint from an early age.
I studied Fashion and Textiles at Manchester and after obtaining a BA Hons in that field, pursued a career in Fashion design for the next 25 years.
It is with a great sense of colour and love of pattern, and nature in all it’s guises that I began painting seriously. I take on commission work, and love to paint portraits of animals and people that capture a character and space in time. My mediums of choice are acrylics and oils.
Acrylic allows me to experiment with colour and texture, whilst I like to use oil for a more classical approach to portrait painting.
