Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.
I love to paint pets and botanical scenes, such as gardens.
In painting a pet portrait, I seek to find and show the character of the animal. I find it hugely satisfying recreating the detail in their coat, or the shine in their eyes or nose.
When I paint landscapes I consider my style semi-abstract and impressionistic. In all my work you'll see that colour plays a huge role.
I use mainly acrylic paints, but I also enjoy the looseness of watercolours and inks.
In 2021 I was a Wildcard on the Sky Landscape Artist of the Year programme. It was a real privilege and a fantastic experience to see behind the scenes!
