Thank you for stopping by!
I’m a lifelong artist who is now following my heart for pastel paintings after spending the last 25 years as an accountant turned IT geek!!
In 2006 I started painting with pastels. Having won a competition in the SAA magazine for a pastel course in Devon I discovered velour paper and my portraits suddenly came alive – I love velour paper!
In 2014 I was honoured to win the ‘domesticated animal’ category of the Association of Animal Artists annual exhibition, something I am immensely proud of.
I adore nature and love being out walking and photographing animals and birds along the way.
To be able to create pastel paintings from these and to be able to create pet portraits which people treasure is something that gives me so much pleasure!
A pet portrait is a wonderful gift that lasts a lifetime, for frequently asked questions and a guide to pricing please go to my pet portraits page.
You can paint too!! Yes I know many of you think you can’t but trust me EVERYONE can draw – we used to get so much pleasure from colouring in and then we grew up and stopped… come to one of my workshops and discover your inner creative!!
No workshops nearby? Contact me I may be going on tour and I can add you to the schedule!!
To take a look at some of the animals I’ve painted please see my gallery.
I have also painted people and other things – a Velocette motorbike being one! You can see these on my Facebook page.
