Based in United Kingdom
After graduating from Loughborough University in 2001 with a BA Hons in 3D Design I pursued my ambition to be a Secondary School Art and Design teacher. Supporting teenagers achieve their dreams has been my priority for 20 years, and I love teaching. Lockdown due to Covid 19 gave me the time and focus to reassess my own dreams and begin the journey to change my painting hobby into my career. Along with the support of my fabulous family I have built my garden studio where I can be found most days with the music blasting, creating my emotion in paint in my little space of heaven.
I am proud to be an emerging artist in 2020, in the most difficult of years it has been clear that we must make every day count and for me that has meant to follow my life long dream and pick up the paint brush.
To paint for me is joy, calm, anger, frustration, distress, pure emotion. It is a personal escape and each and every piece is created with love and passion.
I paint in acrylic and oil and create work in a range of canvas sizes.
I take inspiration from the wonderful natural surroundings of Leicestershire and Derbyshire, where I live and grew up, along with family holiday adventures to the magnificent British coastline and Yorkshire Dales. I adore how a sky, seascape or landscape can bring happiness straight to the soul and I invite you to share my passion to create emotion through my paintings.
