Art has been a passion of mine from an early age. It was my favourite subject at school and I also took extra classes, even selling a few pictures in local exhibitions when I was in my early teens. I was tutored mostly in oils but pastels were always my preferred medium.
Although I was offered a place at art college, I chose a different career path which has taken me on an interesting and diverse journey through life. Whatever else I’ve done, I have always continued my interest in art and have enjoyed exploring many different creative areas, including interior design, pottery, jewellery making and mosaic.
Inspired by a figure drawing and printing workshop, I rediscovered my passion for painting and drawing. Encouraged by the positive interest in my work from friends, family and clients, I am now selling my work commercially.
Much of my art is influenced by my work as a Pilates & Yoga Instructor. I am fascinated by the structure of the body and the way that it moves. I also take inspiration from nature and see resemblances between trees and plants and the human form. I work mostly in acrylics and pastels and love to experiment with mixed media compositions. Recently I have started print making, which I love.
I hope that you enjoy looking at my work as much as I enjoy creating it.
