I have been painting with West Wycombe
Art Group since 2013.  Looking at art has
always been important for me but attempting
to create it came later in life and I find both
activities enhance the other.


Attending courses and workshops with inspirational tutors is an enabling experience and has given me the confidence to keep experimenting with a variety of new approaches and materials. My working method now is one of direct response to the picture as it develops on the canvas, resulting in a challenging and exciting journey which one which doesn’t reflect a single personal ‘style’.

I enjoy participating in exhibitions and Open Studios – it’s very satisfying when someone appreciates a painting that you have created.

Favourite media:
Watercolour, acrylic,
