Colourful, detailed paintings of tranquil gardens, old buildings, chickens and geese
Pen and watercolour
Sawston, Cambridge

I am inspired by local gardens and old buildings, and also enjoy sketching chickens and geese going about their business.

Many of my works are in pen and watercolour. I use a dip pen to pick out the textures of trees and the contrasting shapes of flowers and leaves, and then add watercolour.

Since gaining a certificate in printmaking at the Curwen Print Study Centre, I now create hand-coloured linocuts as well as paintings.

I trained in Graphic Design at St. Martin’s but nowadays concentrate on producing original artworks. Several of my pictures have been taken abroad as memories of the English countryside.

I exhibit regularly with the Cambridge Drawing Society and the Society of East Anglian Watercolourists as well as Open Studios.
