Although I have never received any formal training I have been painting and drawing as long as I can remember! Born in Devon and brought up in Cornwall, I lived in Kent for 31 years before moving to Suffolk in July 2009.
I am continually inspired by the countryside and sea and my paintings are my impression of the immense variety of colour and texture in our surroundings. I also draw animal portraits in pastel from photographs and am happy to undertake a commission for that special occasion.
If you are interested in any paintings you see here, or are considering a commission, please get in touch. I hope you like my work! Laina
