When I am in my studio, my work always goes back to thoughts and images of my daily surrounds. As a horticulturist my days are spent outdoors. All shades of the palette , the movement of the breeze, the scents in the air, light that varies from hour to hour, season to season. The fleeting moments. If I can capture elements of this in my work , then I am satisfied.
We have lived on the same property for 35 years. A sense of place and roots firmly dug in this beautiful part of the world.
Traditionally a watercolourist, I now love mixing my tools. Pastels, charcoals, pencils and watercolour to give more definition and movement to my work.
