I have always loved to draw and paint. Animals are my first love, especially big cats, dogs and horses. At the present time I am drawn to the wonderful variety of British wildlife, particularly hares.
As well as animals I also like to paint many different subjects including landscapes, floral, ballet studies and portraits. Commissions have included dogs, horses and other pets, but also family and children’s portraits.
After painting in oils or pastels for many years, I currently enjoy experimenting with a variety of different media, including combinations of watercolour with pastel and inks; depending on the subject and the feeling I am trying to convey. This can be a sense of movement, or stillness, or character.
My paintings have been exhibited at various galleries in Nottinghamshire, Derby, Stamford and Lincoln.
I am based in the Nottinghamshire area and available for demonstrations and workshops in pastel, oils, acrylics, watercolour and mixed media.
