"Born and bred in West Dorset, my mother and her father both loved to paint so I grew up in an artistic family encouraged to paint, and have painted on and off all of my life.
I like using acrylics in particular because it is possible to get the effects of watercolour painting or that of an oil painting. Sometimes I use a combination of both to achieve the result that I want.
Living in Axminster I am quite close to the sea and go on long coastal walks which give me inspiration for many of my paintings. I also have access to wonderful Dorset and Devon countryside which provide me with a rich source of subject matter. In both locations it is the sky that always has a profound effect on me.
I love painting skies, over the years I have painted many pets for their owners (dogs and cats) and have now developed a love of depicting animals.
I love looking at the work of other artists especially the impressionists but never try to copy there work, I can only paint the way that I see things and admire the great artists like Turner and Monet."
