I paint in watercolour, sometimes including other media such as pastel, pen and ink or collage. I have also recently started experimenting with acrylic inks and painting on a gesso base. My main interest is in colour and design, and most of my paintings are quite stylised. I paint a wide range of subjects, but particularly enjoy painting animals. My painting Feeling Blue was a winner of the Jean Haines Beat the Blues painting challenge and, more recently, I was delighted to find that my linocut Snow on the Hills had won the 2017 (Artist category) Charity Christmas Greetings competition. I also regularly exhibit and sell at my local art club exhibitions. Other interests include gardening and agility training with my collie dog.
