Based in United Kingdom
I am a visual artist based in County Antrim. I graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Textile Design and my passion for colour, texture and pattern continues to inspire my work. Balancing my career in education as a teacher of Art and Design, I have continued to carve out time for my own practice, creating paintings inspired by the beauty of nature. My creative process involves experimenting with soft, atmospheric backgrounds which suggest movement and allow the detailed silhouettes of natural form to take centre stage. I use a soft and subtle colour palette to record entwined flowers and foliage, allowing me to capture the calming effects of nature and the changing seasons. Using acrylic paints I layer and overlay on canvas and adore the textural quality of this surface. My painting practice brings me an abundance of joy and comfort, and working from my Whisper Studio, which overlooks my garden, my wish is that one of my paintings will bring the same to your home.
