Two of my happiest places are in my garden - planting seeds, growing flowers and veg - and in my studio playing with paints, inks, brushes and rollers. I live in a rural location and have a studio with doors opening onto my garden, through which I can see a damson tree hung with birdfeeders, my pond and the countryside beyond. From these I take much of my inspiration. Painting mainly with acrylics and oils, I also make multi-layered hand-printed lino cuts. I enjoy both processes, so some days it’s a painting day and others I can’t wait to print!
