Art is something that has interested me all my life. I recall my grandmother teaching me to paint a Viking's head in oil paints when I was only small. Until recently, I have largely taught myself and viewed my artistic pursuit as not much more than a hobby, but am very pleased to now be pursuing art more seriously. I love to be versatile, but I believe my particular artistic style is largely centred around focusing on beauty that might otherwise be overlooked, looking beyond the obvious. I now paint predominantly in watercolours, but also use other mediums, such as oils, pastels, gouache and acrylics and ink.
I feel passionate about the local area in Somerset, my relatives having lived and farmed in the vicinity for generations. I enjoy painting landscapes
