Hello, and welcome to my website!
Heartfelt apologies for the length of time since I last updated the website but I've just uploaded 20 new images and created a new "room" (Special Projects) for my artistic endeavours that can't be described as just "paintings". I hope you like them.
I have also agreed to tutor a couple of one day workshops with local art groups during 2019. I'm really excited about this - I've given the occasional 1 on 1 lessons and group lessons in the past and always thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. I get a huge kick from seeing budding artists (of all ages) leave with one or two completed canvases under their arms at the end of the day.
I'm currently hard at work on some commissions and preparing for what, to me, is the start of the exhibition season - the Needham Market Art Exhibition in Needham's Community Hall over the long Easter weekend. About me
My art is heavily influenced by my surroundings - the beautiful
countryside, villages and people of Suffolk, UK. I have a particular
affinity for animals and my five cats provide
endless inspiration as they play and explore. I also like to experiment with more avant garde abstracts and
architecture, and occasionally like to dabble in sculptural pieces made
from everyday objects, glass and even bone.
I received a BA Hons in Art in 2004, studying as a mature
student whilst bringing up 5 children and looking after the menagerie. Phew!
hope you enjoy looking at my work and find something to interest you.
If you do, please feel free to e-mail me - the details are on my
"Uniquely Away" magazine article
I'm really excited that Uniquely magazine decided to devote a 2 page spread to me in their Summer 2015 edition - and I love the results! Have a read for yourself and let me know what you think by coming back and sending me a message! The article can be found here
