Art has been a passion of mine for many years. I get the greatest pleasure experimenting with different media - not always successful but so much fun! Being self taught, the local art groups have been a great source of information and inspiration through wonderful demonstrations and workshops, not to mention all the friendships I’ve made. I am always excited by the beauty of the Devon sea and landscapes and now predominantly produce work inspired by my surroundings, often seeking to capture reflections and light in my paintings. My most unexpected highlight was to receive a highly commended for a landscape painting of Bystock Pools at the SAA Artist of the Year competition in 2015.
