I began by using watercolour painting botanical illustration. Now I use acrylics, oils and pastel, my preferred medium is pastel. My favourite subjects are skies and portraits, I take commissions for portraits. I take a lot of photographs for source material. Living in Derbyshire, the Peak District gives me a lot of inspiration. One of my favourite artists is Kurt Jackson who lives in Cornwall, hopefully later in the year I hope to visit his gallery in St Just.
I usually paint with the other members of Painting Malarkey and also in my conservatory where the light is very good for working at my easel.
I am looking forward to when we can all meet up again.
