I have always loved sketching and spent most of my youth and teenage years with a pencil in my hand!
In 2006 I started painting with pastels. Having won a competition in the SAA magazine for a pastel course in Devon I discovered velour paper and my portraits suddenly came alive – I love velour paper!
In 2014 I was honoured to win the 'domesticated animal' category of the Association of Animal Artists annual exhibition, something I am immensely proud of.
I adore nature and love being out walking and photographing animals and birds along the way.
To be able to create paintings from these and to be able to create pet portraits which people treasure is something that gives me so much pleasure!
A pet portrait is a wonderful gift that lasts a lifetime, for frequently asked questions and a guide to pricing please go to my pricing page.
To take a look at some of the animals I’ve painted please see my gallery.
I have also painted people and other things – a Velocette motorbike being one! You can see these on myFacebook page.
