I specialise in watercolour seascapes from my own photographs, as well as pressing seaweed. I live in the Waterside area of Hampshire on the edge of the New Forest and five minutes from the Solent shore line, which inspires much of my work..
I have been painting for over 30 years, originally animals and bird studies. But having taken early retirement in 2004, my husband and I moved to the Waterside to live by the sea again. I now specialise in Nautical water colours. I can accept Nautical commissions, or I have a selection of boats and shorelines always available, along with pressed seaweed and nautical photographs available for purchase. Additionally I have a range of my own cartoon characters as pictures or cards.
I also teach spinning, using Ashford Spinning Wheels.
I live on the edge of the New forest with my wife Claire and two sons Jay and Max. I’ve lived in this part of the world all my life, and this has been a major influence on my interests and now the projects I am involved in (Project Peregrine Exxon-PPE).
Since early 2013, with the help of likeminded people I’ve successfully published three children’s conservation books, and produced a number of pieces of art work. This isn’t my profession just a passion.
