The inspiration for my paintings comes from observing the ﬂowers and trees in our gardens and our beautiful ever changing landscapes. However other subject matter does creep in now and again along with the occasional commission. Watercolour is my medium of choice, enhanced with ink and often a splatter of ‘gold’ to awaken a painting. I like to use creative techniques to introduce light, vibrancy, texture , colour and the odd surprise to visually enhance my main subject, which usually leans towards realism. My paintings are now in homes in the UK, America, Germany and Australia. I feel lucky to have had so much success with my Art and to have made new friendships with fellow artists, while hopefully inspiring others to pick up a paintbrush and ‘Have a Go’.
