From May 2020
‘The aim of my artwork is always to capture the essence, personality and mood of living things.
I studied botanical illustration during my horticulture training at Capel Manor College, as I found I was drawing rather than photographing plants for identification purposes. I then studied drawing technique at the Art Academy but was quickly bored with cereal boxes, teapots and other inanimate objects.
I have been life drawing for several years, at local sessions with all sorts of models, poses, styles and lighting. I tend to paint and draw instinctively and have recently been experimenting with watercolour and collage techniques as a way to brighten up dull backgrounds, and accentuate the main subject.
I take commissions, particularly portraits of horses and/or people, on request.’
