A Warm Welcome! I live and work near Thirsk, North Yorkshire, near the beautiful North York Moors with my family. This photo is a close representation of how I am! Always with a brush in my hand either painting outside or in or happily teaching Art, indoors in winter or outdoors ‘en plein air’ in the summer! I teach and paint a wide range of topics observing and studying texture, colour, line and tone capturing the true miracles of life in a vibrant palette to awake the senses, predominantly in oils and acrylics but I do have some fun with handpainting Denim which I take down to the Art Market by the River in York!
My inspiration comes from the divine beauty of nature which is mesmerising, wonderful, beautiful and a gift! Spending time in my garden or outside observing the changes with the seasons I find gives a sense of stillness and anchors me and slows us down to a healthy living pace. Being at one is when I paint my truest Paintings. It’s a joyful connected experience. This transfers directly to my teaching too!
Each painting is painted with positive energy, calm and Joy and I hope will truly uplift and create a space of happiness, warmth and calm for you to enjoy in your home and sanctuary -wherever you are or however busy life is. Enjoy XX
