North Lincolnshire Artist


Cathedral Cavern, Lakes

I have always been creative and in my teens I painted in oils.  In early adulthood I explored many crafts and textile design on a commercial level. 

Later on I became interested in gardening and went on to re-design several gardens before undertaking an HNC in Horticulture and Garden Design in 2000-2002.  This involved photography (another love of mine) as well as  drawing and painting to enable clients to visualise the completed gardens.  I enjoyed painting so much that I began studying watercolours when on holiday in Scotland as this was the only time I had to indulge myself.  I sold my first painting there and this spurred me on to develop my talent further.  I became hooked and I have not been able to stop painting since.  In fact, I have now retired from my ‘day job’ so that I can concentrate more fully on painting.

I am also a keen photographer and love taking landscapes, trying to capture different light effects. I also love taking close ups of flowers and several of these photos have been displayed in exhibitions. 

Differing light conditions fascinate me and I try to capture them in my work.  I paint in watercolours and acrylics mainly and also encaustic wax now and then.  I am really enjoying this but it is so totally different from my other work. 

My work has been included in exhibitions at galleries in England and Scotland and has sold internationally.  I am a member of Street Art Hull and take part in many local exhibitions including Winteringham Music and Arts Festival each September/October. 

I am now exhibiting locally with Eileen Rounce as VILLAGE ART and around the Hull area with Street Art Hull.
