I’ve painted for nearly my whole life and taught art privately for the past 15 years. I’m now taking a step back from teaching to concentrate on my professional art career. I paint with dye based watercolours and permanent inks. My compositions are of British wildlife and local flowers or, exotic animals, flora and fauna, I paint while visiting South Africa, Florida, and Europe. My work is full of life, fun and joy. If my paintings don’t make you smile, I’m not working hard enough. I undertake commissions to be completed in my distinctive style, I offer a full professional mounting and framing service through a local Sheffield company, Inframe. I’m an avid cyclist and gardener, everything I see influences my work, and nearly all my paintings have a story behind their creation.
