painting, printmaking
Colourful, detailed pen and watercolour paintings. NEW hand-printed linocuts. Tranquil gardens, old buildings and scenes of chickens and geese. Cards.

    I am inspired by local gardens and old buildings, working mainly in pen and watercolour. I use a dip pen to pick out the textures of trees and the contrasting shapes of flowers and leaves, and then add watercolour. I also enjoy sketching chickens and geese going about their business.

    I trained in Graphic Design at St. Martin’s but nowadays I concentrate on creating original paintings. Several of my pictures have been taken abroad as memories of the English countryside.

    I was selected to join the Society of East Anglian Watercolourists in 2018. I also exhibit regularly with the Cambridge Drawing Society and Cambridge Open Studios.

    Since gaining the Curwen certificate in printmaking in 2017, I now create hand-coloured lino cuts as well as paintings.
