A Hazy Summer Afternoon

Here I am again painting. I have chosen to use watercolour paints, which made a change because I normally use gouache. I enjoyed the delicate quality of the watercolours and working in washes.

Painting the Lily pond at Jubilee Gardens in Bewdley

It was a lovely sunny afternoon so I decided to have a go at painting the lily pond in my own style. The gardens were looking especially beautiful with all the sun and rain that we have had recently. I shall finish the painting in my studio at home.

I shall be exhibiting in the gallery at Croome Court walled gardens

Last week I delivered ten of my large paintings, some prints and cards to the pottery and gallery in the walled gardens at Croome Court. I shall be exhibiting there for a month over August and the gallery will open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. I shall post some more photos when they exhibition has […]

Caemes Cove in Anglesey

While I was staying in Anglesey with my family recently I made this small study of Caemes Cove. I kept a sketch book and I am planning to create more paintings of the beautiful landscapes and lighthouses that we saw on walks along the coast.

Exhibiting at the Three Counties Show

It was very snug in the marquee at the “Three Counties show” in Malvern and it was great to meet up again and see some familiar faces of people who visited my stand. While I often prefer to be in the fresh air we were protected from the torrential rainfall on a few occasions!

Time Travel through dance, Pattern and Rhythm

This Summer I shall again be teaching at Chichester University as part of a Summer school with Margaret Morris Movement. I shall be combining my skills of Theatre Design and Dance to teach some workshops. It’s great to draw on my different skills and pull them together in this interesting project culminating in a performance […]

Inspired by Looe Harbour

I created this painting while I was on my stand at the Three Counties Show in Malvern. I made the sketch at home and enjoyed building up the layers of colours to create the atmosphere. It isn’t an accurate painting of Looe, more an imaginary place which allows me more artistic licence. I had fun […]

A view of St. Ives from a boat

I spent quite a while on this painting of a view of St.Ives, even though it is only small. I used some photographic reference but I wanted to capture the atmosphere of light and colour including movement without being too specific and to draw upon my memories of being there.

Twr Mawr at Ynys Llanddwyn

I have just finished this painting of a lighthouse in Anglesey, Wales. I enjoyed adding the wild flowers and grasses in the foreground. I loved the winding pathway that led up to the lighthouse.

Exhibiting at Hever Castle with Craft in Focus

This year my individual marquee alongside the other crafts people and artists, overlooked Hever castle with it’s moat and gardens. This was such an inspiring backdrop in which to paint. There was some beautiful topiary which I might explore in some new garden paintings.
