ABOUT

I use iPhone, camera and photo sharing websites to help create my paintings. Sketches can help with design but I mostly paint from the heart. 


”Ideas for my work can happen at anytime and once that vision or feeling appears the brain goes into overdrive and the need to get it down on a surface is enormous. There is no holding back when it comes to colour and this is governed by my mood and what the painting needs. It gives me a big smile when viewers can feel and understand the form and colours I use."


I live with my husband and 2 children in a small village in Somerset, UK
