I started painting 4 years ago, the first time I have ever picked up an artist's brush. I was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2013 and took up art as a form of therapy and relaxation. I work mainly in acrylic, but I also occasionally use watercolour and water soluble oils. I mainly paint landscapes, seascapes and the natural environment in general. My favoured style is abstract, impressionist and mixed media . I love reflections, light, shadow and vibrant colours. I paint mainly in the house and garden and I get my inspiration from nature and virtually all of my painting is imaginary ,occasionally I paint some of my favourite places.
