I have loved drawing and painting since childhood when I received my first set of watercolour paints. I have explored acrylic, pastel, oils and a brief spell with glass painting. My inspiration comes from the beautiful local countryside, holiday scenes, children and animals. I will have for sale framed originals, prints and cards, also mini canvas paintings on easels. There will be an opportunity for children to make a painting.
I love the natural world. As far as I’m concerned there is beauty in any creature regardless of what it is, and inspiration can be found in the humblest of animals. All you have to do is look. I love to work in acrylics, gouache, marker pen and pencil.
I live on a small holding which along with the Derbyshire countryside gives me inspiration for my work, especially the local stone walls, gate, barns, fences and trees. I use a variety of mediums, favourites being watercolour, oils and pencils.
My inspiration comes from nature and the surrounding Derbyshire countryside. I enjoy lino printing, printing cards, collagraph landscape printing, working with watercolours, gouache, mixed media and acrylics. I have recently started making macrame leaves on driftwood, and artists concertina sketchbooks.
