Once a teacher, I still found time to draw occasionally for various commercial magazines. After leaving teaching full time in 2018, I was able to devote a lot more time to painting and also sought training from a range of accomplished artists such as Jo Shepherdson, Dan Scott and Richard Kitson. In 2022 I was accepted onto the Emerging Artists programme with Charnwood Arts and have exhibited at a range of venues within the county. Much of my subject matter is based on scenes around where I live in Loughborough.
For me, it's all about light, which is what lured me from pencils to paints. With captivating light, almost any scene has potential for a painting. Not so much a photo-realistic depiction, the joy of paint is that it gives the opportunity to try something a little more expressive. Ideally I'd like to capture a feel of what made me want to paint it in the first place. Ultimately, I’d like my paintings to be more about a place than of it.
For me, it's primarily landscapes. A lover of the outdoors as spaces to walk, run and cycle, I'm very much open to allowing these to inspire my work, whether it’s cycling over a mountain or strolling
