Watercolours and mixed media
My paintings are largely inspired by the local environment and the creatures that inhabit it. Working from my garden studio in Cornwall, using transparent glazes of watercolour to capture the ethereal effects of light and colour in nature.
An experienced artist and tutor - I have been teaching watercolour, exhibiting, and developing my work over many years. A member of the Drawn to the Valley group of artists based in the Tamar Valley.
In normal times I teach a variety of watercolour classes and workshops in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset, demonstrate for art groups and have published contributions in art books.
My paintings are currently exhibited at Wildwood Gallery Horrabridge, Dartmoor.
My love of nature and wildlife has spilled over into my ceramics. All of my ceramic pieces are one off hand built, kiln fired and hand painted. Experimenting with painterly techniques for clay and developing ideas that are both decorative and have a practical use has been a joy.
My ceramics are currently exhibited at Ashburn Gallery, Ashburton, Devon.
