I paint fresh, loose and atmospheric watercolour landscape paintings and started painting seriously a few years ago after a long bout of illness. I loved the bright colours and natural flow of the watercolour paints in water and found that the whole creative process helped me to relax and heal. My work plays with this colour and movement as much as possible to interpret the landscape around me. For me, my paintings capture the light, life and vibrancy that I took for granted when I was healthy! I sell original paintings, prints and cards in local galleries and at art fairs around the country. I am based in Durham City with my young family but always enjoy travelling and finding new landscapes to paint!
