Biography

Brush strokes are my words”

"Art represents my thoughts ” 

It all started with a simple gift of ‘painting by numbers’ when I was eight years old. 

I remember it well.. A grey mare and foal. It took me so long to finish it – so long that the little pots of paint dried up before I could complete it. 

Dad came to the rescue. One day he arrived home with some small tubes of oil paints – and the rest is history. 

With no formal art training but plenty of enthusiasm I have nurtured my artistic skills over the years, soaking up the chance to learn through many sources including books, YouTube videos, art clubs, workshops and art holidays. I jumped at any chance I could to absorb new techniques and mediums. 

My style has varied over the years and I’ve enjoyed the learning journey, finally embracing acrylics as my medium of choice, followed closely by oils. 

I’m enjoying a looser, impressionistic style and dabbling into the wonderfully liberating world of abstract. 

Having lived on the Northumberland coast all my life my artistic senses are honed by its gritty beauty and amazing light. 

Seasons, skies and the sea all play an important role in my art and provide me with an ever-changing source of inspiration. 

Welcome to my thoughts..
