WELCOME TO MY GALLERY

Welcome to my website and a selection of my work. I trained as a dress designer, then ran a design & display business for more than 30 years. During that time, I attended art college in Budapest and rekindled my love for painting.

I paint mostly landscapes and still life using oil but sometimes acrylic or mixed media and am currently working on a series of Cornish paintings from travels this summer and autumn. I try to capture the emotional response felt when first choosing my subject and work hard to present a more abstract expression in paint.
