I am inspired by people and animals. I am interested in the way they behave and their thoughts. My art has taken on a life of its own recently, following a path of exploration into portraiture, wild life and nature, and also different media and combinations of media within one painting. Images of this work can be found in my gallery, as well my Facebook and Instagram pages. Follow me on social media for regular updates to my painting journey
My paintings are mainly in watercolour which will come to you mounted and in a plastic sleeve. I love the freedom I have when I paint with watercolour. Water has a life of its own and I enjoy the slow process of layering up the colours of water to see the final results. Some of my work is in acrylic. I feel less free when I paint with acrylic, and enjoy concentrating on the details.
Prints (a5 and a4) and digital copies (up to a4 size) are available too. I will add these to my Etsy shop soon, or feel free to message me directly, as I am always happy to talk and advise.
I can post straight to you in 1 - 2 days, free postage, if you are within the UK. Times may change if outside the UK and postage cost will apply. I can also post to a different address, if it is for a gift, and add a personalised note for you. Again, just message me with details.
If for any reason you are unhappy with the painting, I will give you a full refund if you can return the painting in the same standard as I have sent it to you, with the secure and protective packing.
If you are interested in having a painting painted for you personally, then please send me a message. I am always looking for more inspiration and ideas for painting, so all suggestions welcome!

You will copy me as I draw and paint a different animal each week.
I will talk you through how I approach each painting, and then the techniques I use when drawing and applying the paint.
I will guide and support you as you paint along with me, and offer tips and suggestions where necessary.
The aim is for you to complete a painting each week, although you can go at your own pace and finish at home, or in another session.
Everything is supplied for you, including an A4 canvas, all paints, brushes, pallets and easels. You are welcome to bring your own equipment if you'd like.
Please make sure you wear appropriate clothing - acrylic paint is tricky to wash out of clothes.
To cancel or reschedule, please text me with as much notice as you can.
Refunds will only be given if cancellation is more than 24 hours.
