Welcome to my website, I guess you are like me, an animal and nature lover? I really hope you love what you see as much as I enjoyed creating it. Painting all species, particularly the endangered is my passion, especially if it helps raise awareness of their future. Our beloved pets also keep me busy with commissions. (that and our own pet chickens; Banana and Purple!)
At home in the U.K, I am a Kent based artist who loves to travel, and having found my creative passion late in life, I am reminded through inspiring places as well as the abundance of colour and texture I use when painting, that every day art truly celebrates the act of living.
It is with that in mind that I develop my paintings instinctively, always in the knowledge that the process will be bright and bold yet meditative. I paint driven by feelings of joy and playfulness with various mediums; brushes; knives; fingers and all manner of utensils to add texture and individuality to each piece. I like to think my finished animals are wearing their personality on the outside. The eyes too are an area I focus on, I feel they really are a window to the soul, for all that view my work I very much hope you are drawn to a piece and it speaks to you emotionally, evoking feelings of fun, love, empathy and celebration.
How did I get here?
After looking after my family; house; pets and the corporate world of various businesses over the last twenty-five years I physically and mentally crashed. My always-upbeat world turned grey, that was until I found art and WOW, with it came a vision for a completely different life…
You can come on my artistic journey with me in my blog. I will take you on an adventurous ride in my, far too big, left hand drive motorhome. We will lumber around the coastline of England, Wales and Scotland and who knows where else! Not only creating art personally but also sharing my passion for others wellbeing by hosting free art classes on those beautiful beaches. Through imaginative experimentation I aim to inspire others to find moments of mindfulness and freedom. Maybe I’ll meet you on my journey or you will find a moment for yourself at one of my paint parties?
