I’m inspired by the hills of Wales and colours of the Mediterranean. My love of nature and the outdoors along with the need to connect with open spaces helps my expression of the landscape; using any tools I find to mark out undulations, colours, leaves and the occasional pathway.
My style is achieved by the manipulating tools, water and pigment across the paper. My landscape paintings are layered using collage, watercolour and cotton, my florals and wildlife are simply watercolours.
I regularly exhibit across Oxfordshire and surrounding areas. I work full-time for the NHS which I love, but I am aiming for less work and more play in future!
