WELCOME TO MY GALLERY

Welcome to my website and a small selection of my work. Initially, I trained as a dress designer then ran a design & display business for over 30 years. During this time I attended art college in Budapest and this rekindled my love of painting. I paint mostly in oil but sometimes in acrylic and mixed media.

I love to paint the east coast of northern England where I grew up and I am presently working on a series of Spanish paintings taking paint & canvas to the beach. I paint to capture the emotional response I feel when I first choose my subject, pouring my feelings into the canvas to produce an abstracted expression in paint.

I carry a sketchbook and paint the locations I visit, using the sketches as a reference when I complete the paintings in my studio.
