Cocklawburn Beach, Northumberland - watercolour
Red Sky at Night - oil
I was brought up in Edinburgh and the Scottish countryside has always been key to what I paint. I am inspired by the beautiful colours and scenery, loving to paint skies,mountains and water mainly in watercolour, but more recently in oil as well. When painting in watercolour I enjoy the way the water mixes with the paint, often throwing up welcome surprises. Most of my work is relatively abstracted, letting the viewer make many decisions for themselves.
Whilst my children were small I took a break from painting. For the last twenty years I have invested much more time in art. I am also a member of Leicester Sketch Club, exhibiting with LSA and LSC and I also take part in Rutland Open Studios.
