It has been a lifelong learning journey for me, having discovered early in life the joy of creative expression.
I love to create highly detailed realism, to a looser distinctive style using the magical beauty of watersoluble media.
Watercolours have delicacy, transparency and unpredictable liveliness, and that's what fascinates me!
Its beautiful endless colour palette, that has wonderful luminosity and lightfastness, all perfect for my detailed floral, nature and wildlife paintings
I try to work from life, when possible, getting photographs for backup, and using my library of natural history books, for added reference, that I have collected over many deadicated years.
