About the Artist
I am a mainly self taught artist with a lifelong interest. I grew up in a house full of watercolours and as a child enjoyed drawing from an early age, to begin with it was nearly always ponies. A love of the natural world and animals has always run alongside my interest in art and is reflected in my choice of subject.
I began painting more seriously around the Millenium, and started exhibiting in 2001, since when I have taken part in many exhibitions, art trails and open studio events as well as having work in local galleries and being accepted for selection only exhibitions. I love to paint out of doors when the weather will allow. I was born on the edge of a seaside town in East Sussex, which is probably where I got my love of the coast, (wild coast rather than promenades) but have lived nearly all of my life in rural Somerset.
