Hi! So glad you are visiting my Web Site, enjoy! I am a watercolour artist, who enjoys painting landscapes, gardens and flowers and 'quirky' corners. As I live on the coast marinescapes also feature. 

I  have always created things. As a child it was arts and crafts, especially art at school and dancing. Followed by sewing,  gardening and writing. Then I came back to art and decided that this is what I really wanted to do, especially watercolour. I attended evening classes and as many courses as I could, and still go on at least one course a year as this reinvigorates my paintings, giving me more ideas and other ways of doing things.

Painting for me is all absorbing, a world made bright by light and colour, seasons studied and interpreted, the fleeting moment of flowers captured in paint. Quirky corners, old broken pots with the sun catching their top edges, landscapes interpreted in a special way, not just a photograph taken in an instant but a feeling of light, colour and mood. A brush in the hand and the flow of jewel-like paint on paper. Heaven!

I live on the coast near Chichester and I also run watercolour classes locally during the Autumn and Winter or on a one to one basis. I also teach a group at the Millstream Hotel, Bosham, once a year, so do contact me if you are interested.
