I am a long-time member of the Eddisbury Artists and have exhibited with them on many occasions especially at Castle Park Arts Centre. I had a solo exhibition at the Centre in 2017.
My work is mainly in watercolour or pen & watercolour. Drawing and painting are equally important to me. Combining the two techniques suits my inclination to draw and provides an underlying structure to the paintings which can be more loosely concluded with a limited palette of watercolour washes.
I am inspired by the natural world and all that grows. I paint mostly flowers and landscapes. The landscapes of North Wales having a particular significance as in recent years I have rediscovered my family connections with North Wales where my grandparents were born.
In the last 22 years I have exhibited widely in the North of England and North Wales. I have taken part in Cheshire Open Studios and Helfa Gelf. I published a book about painting flowers in watercolour and was a featured artist in the Welsh Border Life magazine in February 2014.
I am a member of several Art Societies including the Wirral Society of Art and the Grosvenor Art Society, Chester. In 2006 I was awarded Membership of the British Watercolour Society.
