July Open Studios
I have always drawn and painted but had no formal tuition. In 1999 I attended a tutor led art class in watercolours which taught me lots of techniques to use to develop my skills. In 2013 I started to paint with acrylics and enjoy this medium as a change from watercolour.
I take inspiration from my love of my garden, hens, sheep, cats, nature, boats and historic /classic cars. I also make collages of eggs, hens, pigs and birds in the style of Victorian specimen cases. My collages are for sale in the craft shop at the Babylon Gallery in Ely, Cambridgeshire
I am a member of Ely Art Lover's Workshop and regularly exhibit in their biannual events. My work has been sold at the Babylon Gallery in Ely and I have exhibited in local events. I have undertaken commissions for painting sailing yachts, seascapes and classic cars.
