I am a watercolour artist based in Halifax, West Yorkshire. I trained as an illustrator and graduated with a BA(Hons) in 1986. I became a freelance artist in 1998, first selling through various galleries until I opened my own gallery studio, where I worked for three years. I now paint in my garden studio. I also teach several adult art courses both at home and with various groups, as well as giving demonstrations.
I love to paint with watercolour, no other medium can produce the effects I want. Although I prefer to paint freely drawing is also very important to me. The subjects I paint range widely as I try to capture images which inspire me. I work from sketches, life and photographs.
The majority of my works are original, though I have some prints and greeting cards. Commissions are a speciality. I also take on occasional illustration and mural work.
I hope that you enjoy browsing through my website, I welcome any enquiries concerning sales, commissions and tuition.
