Expressive abstract and impressionistic artist, living and working in Wiltshire, UK.
I am a self styled artist, who lives in rural Wiltshire with my husband and our cat. I grew up in a village on the edge of the Salisbury plain, being influenced by the landscape and the natural things around me. I have been painting and drawing for some time, gaining experience and confidence over the years. Learning a variety of techniques and gaining wisdom from many artists.
For that I am truly thankful.
As a child I was not typical; I didn't really fit in, but I didn't stand out either, but like most children I liked to paint, draw, scribble and make mess; I mean, what child doesn't? I would spend much of my time in my own world, painting, playing with abandon....
What happens to us as we grow up, with knowledge and responsibilities, I feel it is all too easy to get caught up in worldly worries, we forget to play, to tap into our creativity and our innocence. We forget to truly see the beauty in the world
I want people to notice the beauty that is all around them; the landscape, nature, everyday objects, each other and this beautiful planet; our home.
I believe that an awareness of beauty is the first step to caring for this world, and everything in it. I believe if we can connect to beauty, notice it, see it; then we can make it real, make it a better place for all beings.
I love to paint abstract and impressionistic landscapes, because I want to give people an emotionally moving experience; I love the feeling that I get when I'm out walking and I turn a corner or go somewhere that has a breathtaking view; or when I go to an exhibition and see a painting that is so beautiful, I just want to cry. I want you to feel that too.
I want to connect people to their surroundings, or the ones they wish they had, through my paintings.
I work in various mediums, watercolour, acrylic, oil and mixed media or whatever helps me to explore the subject. For me, art is the one of the truest forms of non-verbal communication, a means of expressing joy.
From my heart to yours,
Art connecting beauty to life.
