Dorset, United Kingdom
I have always loved art and as a child I would frequently be found drawing the trees in the garden.
Post-degree, I worked as a graphic designer in London & Dorset - illustrating natural-history display-boards in watercolour & ink.
Having children compelled me to paint their portraits and easels of varying sizes now became part of the furniture.
Open Art competitions came next and sometimes my entries were selected for exhibition. There’s a full list on my website, but highlights include: Winning the New Forest Open 2015 and being shortlisted for A&I AOTY 2017. It was a dream to have a painting in the Mall Galleries, and poignantly it depicted the old trees in my childhood garden.
I’m currently ‘sculpturing’ wildflowers using impasto paint applied with a painting knife. It felt a natural progression to print onto fabric, so my latest floral paintings are now cushions!
