Fine art, oil and pastel paintings. I love to explore different styles and work in oils, pastels, charcoal and coloured pencils. In much of my work I try to capture the essence of our landscape and nature themes inspired by spending a lot of time on working farms in South Lakeland.
I enjoy the challenge of detailed work and am influenced by Oriental and Art Deco ceramics in the floral work, but also like to go off-piste with colourful, whimsical work that I call Dreamscapes which often feature hares. I produce greetings cards in a range of designs printed from my original artwork.
I'm exhibiting in the outside courtyard at the Hopeful & Glorious Spring Art Fair at Lytham Hall on Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th May, selling artwork and greetings cards from my original artwork.
