The Walled Garden

I love Cottage Gardens and really enjoy painting garden scenes. This painting “The Walled Garden” which I exhibited at The Spring Art Fair in Teddington went to a new home.

Kippers at Craster

Whilst demonstrating at Wisley RHS Spring Garden Show I managed to finish this painting of Craster Harbour which is famous for it’s kippers. You can see Dunstanburgh Castle in the background on this rugged Northumberland coast.

Exhibiting at the RHS Spring Garden show in Malvern

Last week I exhibited at the RHS Spring garden show at Malvern with Boffy Art Markets. Here’s my stand in the Wye hall. I enjoy demonstrating painting too whilst discussing my techniques and subject matter.

The Malvern Hills

The Malvern Hills are such an inspiring landscape and I am excited to be running some art and dance sessions there at “Centre of the Hills” therapy centre in May. They have invited me to join their team of therapists. I shall be holding sessions such as Art for beginners and storytelling adventures for children […]

Garden by the sea

This is an intricate painting of a grapevine, birds and flowers which I imagine could flourish in a warm climate by the sea. The birds look a little bit exotic, a kind of very colourful pigeon!

Craster Harbour

Harbours are one of favourite subjects and this week I have just completed this painting of Craster harbour in Northumberland. I have included some fishing boats and I can still remember the smell of kippers. I think I shall have to incorporate Kippers into my next painting!

Painting Lindisfarne

Here I am painting Lindisfarne. I am working with gouache on paper and I have just added some pearlescent pigment to give the painting a little shimmer.
