A portfolio of some of my work. I love colour and I’m always trying new ideas in paint and other materials to get luscious, fabulous colour into my work. I work in a variety of media. I love oils and the way it can be softly blended, I like the versatility of acrylics, they can be used thick in impasto and wet like watercolour and anything in between. Who can resist?
My watercolour paintings are the most playful, splashy and fun. I sometimes use acrylic inks and paint pens too. When I want something really unusual and contemporary I work in resin with pigments, metallics and semi precious stones.
I've been very lucky to paint some wonderful characters over the years. In the commissions gallery I'd like to share a few of my recent commissions.see the commissions gallery
A gallery of some of my jewellery. Each piece is handmade and unique. I draw the shapes I want and cut them out by hand. Then for the colour, pigments and resins, it reacts as it cures, changing and moving on the surface. The result is quite unpredictable but makes each piece completely unique. Once fully dry the finish is rather like enamel.see the wearable art gallery
When I work on paper I head for the watercolours and often the acrylic inks too. I also have paint pens and various pastels and so my watercolours are really more watermedia paintings or maybe multi media as I can’t resist adding something interesting.see the watercolour gallery
