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 to recreate the detail in their coat, or the shine on their eyes or nose.
When I paint landscapes or botanical forms, I often use an impressionistic style, as I see so many colours and shapes in nature. Colour always plays a huge role in my work.
I use acrylic paints mostly, 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.
I thoroughly enjoy painting our furry friends, capturing their likeness with my use of colour and attention to detail. I can work from a good photo, and I am happy to discuss particular features with a client.
