Welcome to viewing the world, in all its beauty, through the unique window of watercolour. I'm driven by the diversity and challenges of nature and the subtlety and drama of watercolour - a wonderful combination!
I create paintings that add joy to your life, or that you're excited to give to someone special. I feel very privileged to be able to connect with you in this way.
I feel honoured that customers have asked me to capture their holidays, honeymoon, views, experiences, feelings, loved pets and many more subjects.
I specialise in watercolour; I also work in charcoal and pastel and write poetry. I started painting in England where I grew up and now live in Melbourne Australia; however my subject and client-base is international.
The subtlety and drama of watercolour, its beauty and depth captures the world we live in like no other medium - soft, dramatic, emotive, punchy, whimsical, mysterious. Just as we have character, so do trees, clouds and the earth. A tree can be strong, willowy, majestic; clouds can be threatening, soft, peaceful. My paintings are free-flowing, alive, dynamic; my poems are sharp and intense - whether full of laughter or pain.
