My inspiration comes mainly from nature and my garden. I love painting the flowers which I have planted. I also enjoy painting portraits in pastel, and wildlife in gouache. I am totally i...

Many of these works are based on travel overseas, especially in Mediterranean Europe, India, Central and South America and New Zealand.
Travel the world, but home is always best. Dorset is a very beautiful county, re...
I am a Coloured Pencil artist and most of my work is of Natural History or Botanical subjects. I have received many accolades for my work, nationally and internationally. I am an experienced tutor of the Coloured Pencil medium and enjoy sharing what this somewhat under-rated medium can do.
After A level art at school 50 years ago I completed a short introduction to water colour in the spring of 2014. I found myself attracted to painting flowers in detail so pursued botanical illustration and completed 2 short courses with Sally Pinhey and workshops with Christina Hart-Davies. I am now a U3A member and am led by Gillian Constable in Botanical Illustration.
