About me, the artist
Born in 1973 I grew up mostly in rural Somerset. I am completely self taught having not taken the conventional route through education. I was encouraged to draw and paint from an early age, as my parents are both creative people, I was also taken on regular trips to galleries and museums which ignited my passion for art.
Art took a back seat while I raised my three daughters, who now they are older provide much of my inspiration.
I paint in acrylics on canvas board taking inspiration from everyday life. Domestic scenes feature regularly in my pictures taking a romanticised gentler look at life.

Ever conscious of the need to reuse and recycle I recently started to use vintage and good quality second hand frames and have found them an added source of inspiration. Their size, shape and style all influencing the painting they will eventually hold.
