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.

In front of my stand at the RHS Spring Garden show in Malvern

It was fun meeting up with returning customers and fellow exhibitors at the Spring garden show at Malvern last week and over the weekend. The show ended with a very dramatic storm of thunder and lightening and I was so glad to be exhibiting inside one the barns this year!

A woodland scene

There was a beautiful “Gunnera manicata” giant rhubarb plant growing near a stream with giant leaves which was perfect for the atmosphere that […]

The Finished painting of Severnside South

I have finished this commissioned painting and I have taken it to the framers to be framed. I created a similar painting a few years ago of this same scene but in autumn. I am so pleased that spring has finally arrived and I think the bright greens are reflected in this painting. I have […]

White cat and shells

This painting is more imaginative. I like to use the round table at home as a prop and although we don’t have a white cat I thought it would work well with the white shells in a poetic way.
