I live in Felixstowe on the east coast of England with my husband, cats, and dogs. I am a visual explorer slowly working my way around our amazing planet and documenting it through photography and painting.

As a painter, I am fascinated by colour relationships. More recently I have been painting entirely from the imagination producing mindscapes (rather than landscapes). I work in layers and experience a push and pull dynamic with the painting until eventually the painting wins and takes on a life of its own. It’s as if the painting chooses you.

Some of my paintings are influenced by the landscape or environment, but all are abstract. My job is to create not to report.

I paint primarily in acrylic on canvas, mostly because I’m impatient and acrylic dries quickly, and it means I can apply multiple layers.
