 I am an amateur artist and I have lived and worked in Hampshire all my life.

For 26 of these years, I was employed by Eastleigh College teaching floral art.    The knowledge and understanding of design gained through this, proved invaluable when I rekindled my childhood love of painting nearly 15 years ago.

I work mainly in watercolour although sometimes experiment with other water media.    Colour and texture are definitely the main elements of design that influence my paintings.    I do find inspiration from a wide variety of subjects.    Flowers, of course, but I also like to portray aspects of local landscapes and buildings.    However, probably my favourite subject matter is the result of happy holidays on the continent over many, many years.

I do hope you enjoy your visit to my website
