blue sea (2012)

A landscape painter of coastal and woodland scenes, I work in oil and acrylic, often with textural inclusions, such as threads, shells and wood, which emphasise the integration of my work with the world of nature.

Working from direct observation I draw and sketch on site before developing paintings, limited edition prints and etchings in my studio.

Wood, be it trees in the countryside or flotsam and jetsam on the coast,  is a constant source of inspiration. 

“The viewer is drawn in and captivated by her skill in creating broad canvasses which evoke, rather than describe, her love of the natural world.”
