Artistic background

I’m a self taught artist working mainly in the wonderful medium of soft pastel. I especially love connecting with nature, my paintings are primarily landscapes and seascapes, lately I’ve ventured into Florals, cow parsley in particular as I love painting this flower.


I love this quote and try to refer to it when I start a painting.
When you paint try to forget what objects you have before you, a tree, a field, a flower, merely think here is a little square of blue, here is an oblong of pink, a streak of yellow and paint as it looks to you, the exact colours the shape.
Until it gives you your own naive impression of the scene before you - Claude Monet


My interests are getting out into the landscape, walking, visiting historic sites. Yoga & Pilates. And seeing my grandchildren as often as possible.
