About me

me painting.JPG

Thanks for looking at my page-

I paint because I love it, and I love that I get to be out and about taking in amazing views and translating them into something I enjoy painting and others enjoy looking at!


I still work part time in the NHS, but spend virtually all of my spare time painting/ thinking about painting/ demonstrating painting or teaching painting . I find that this is the perfect balance for me- keeping the scientific and artistic parts of my brain enthusiastic, active and engaged, generating new skills and ideas to progress and improve in each of my roles.

I live in the Cotswolds, and paint mainly local landscapes, inspired when out and about walking in fields, villages and towns. I also paint scenes related to my favourite places in the UK-in particular NW  Scotland ( where I have spent every summer for the past 25 years), also Wales, Devon and Cornwall.

I like to sketch and paint en plein air, often finishing works or creating larger works based on sketches when back in the Studio. I favour oils for landscapes of land or sea in which the light and in particular the clouds demand an impressionistic approach, to allow the piece to reflect more than simply a snapshot of what is in front of me, and give the viewer a  role in interpretation.

My work is available online with British Contemporary Art ( and  at the Affordable Art Gallery, Burford Garden Co., and Spencer House Gallery, Tetbury. I also exhibit in local Galleries and sell work  on my Facebook and Instagram. 

Please contact me if you are interested in any of my work, or want to chat about anything art related!!
