I studied at Plymouth College of Art & Design in the late 1980’s. Over the last 10 years I have been inspired to return again to my art by the beauty and wonder of the Animal and Nature realms. My love of the Celtic Tradition figures strongly, as it reflects the interconnectedness of all life on our planet. Living here in rural Mid-Wales, there is much to inspire my art.
With my Celtic paintings I enjoy using the vibrancy of the colours, along with the fine and intricate detail that takes many hours to create and perfect. In contrast, creating my animal paintings allows a greater level of freedom and an ability to capture the essence of the subject.
My painting medium is Gouache and ink. The framing of my pictures is carried out by John, my husband, who makes the frames from trees that have fallen naturally on our smallholding, rather than trees that have been cut down commercially, reflecting our love and respect for trees. Normally the timber used is Oak or Cherry.
Prices for my paintings are available upon request, generally they range from £80 – £180.
I also work on a commission basis for animal portraits.
