Based in a Dovecote studio in rural Herefordshire, England, I aim to create truly original vibrantly colourful artworks using acrylics on birch board or paper.
These are often inspired by my love and practice of music, dance, rhythm and movement, and they offer an interpretation of these experiences.
The creation of each painting is a journey from the first mark to the final brushstroke - they develop in their own time and cannot be hurried, as they need to find their own voice.
Each picture is carefully considered and can take many months, even years, to refine and complete.
The 'About Me' page is where you will find more information about my own progression from draughtswoman, through having a family, to studying Art, working with
3D and sculpture. Then, with my discovery of acrylic paints, developing my own individual colourful non-representational style of painting. Here I will also explain more about what inspires me.
Full details of where you can see my art displayed are on the 'Exhibitions' page. I have shown my work widely in the UK, especially in Herefordshire and the West Midlands, but also in
London and the north of England. During the 2012 London Olympics I was honoured and delighted that my work was chosen to be hung in the Olympic Reception Building - where it can still be seen.
To view my paintings and art for sale go to the 'gallery' page. If you want to see them in person or buy a painting, please contact me, and I will be
happy to help you.
I hope you enjoy your visit here.
