Painting means the world to me; I appreciate every minute spent at my easel in my home studio, where I paint with acrylics on canvas in between tending to my lovely family and pet chickens. My work is largely inspired by nature and treasured landscapes. I live a long way from the sea and I'm drawn to recreating coastal scenes with swishy skies and swirly seas. My early work was largely floral and I still create bold botanicals when the mood takes me. Hopefully, my work can bring a little bit of joy to those who see it.
