The wide variety of my work, in both subject and technique, owes much to my love of travel. A keen walker, I habitually use sketch books and my work is often about ‘magic’moments that have a way of stopping me in my tracks and the effect of light becomes a recurring theme in my work.. I strive to create something beautiful and, hopefully, thought provoking that will continually bring as much pleasure to others as I had in its creation.
Best known for my atmospheric pastel paintings, I am now increasingly using oils and acrylics. I sometimes experiment with mixed media and that has led to some more abstracted interpretations but I am convinced that there remains a place for representational painting in the hearts of many, including myself.
I have exhibited in many group shows and had successful solo exhibitions. My paintings have been selected for open exhibitions, including the Society of Women Artists and the Pastel Society at the Mall Galleries in London. I am a member of Artists Network Bedfordshire and Arts Gateway, Milton Keynes and am also represented by The Norton Way Gallery, Letchworth www.nortonwaygallery.com. Visitors are welcome by appointment to my studio at Arts Central, Station House, 500 Elder Gate, Central Milton Keynes MK9 1BB.
Over the years I have been able to share my love of painting with all levels of ability both as a tutor and demonstrator. I think this has made a valuable contribution to my personal development as an artist, encouraging me to constantly expand my own knowledge. I hope to continually evolve as an artist, feeding the passion with my travels for as long as I am able.
