I am a self-taught artist based in Norwich, Norfolk specialising in watercolour which I find can be seductively subtle yet exciting and eye catching. Early on in my painting career, I favoured flower painting. Being able to capture a likeness and radiance of a flower was inspiring and captivating to me.
Over the years I have been drawn to many subjects and now find it hard to find a favourite theme. As my painting subjects have changed, so have my painting styles. Instinctively I am a detailed painter with some pieces almost achieving photographic realism but I also love the freedom of loose work which has an abstract feel to the finished work.
I have been painting for over 30 years and teaching through various means including private classes, one-day workshops, visiting art groups as a guest tutor and running local Adult Education Courses. I have the PTTLS teaching qualification.Recently, I have experimented with inks and Brusho Crystals. Adding these mediums to watercolour paintings I find can create amazing results.
I am delighted to be teaching here in France. The course content will be flexible and designed to meet the needs of the individual painters ensuring that beginners know where to start and advanced painters are developing their styles. Throughout the course, I will share my knowledge and experience to ensure you achieve your painting ambitions.
