“I have just opened the parcel to reveal the most stunning picture. It is gorgeous, I absolutely love it. It is not only stunning but at the same time soothing and relaxing, a joy to the eye and heart. I will always love it!”

Artist Statement

“My painting is all about capturing the atmosphere, beauty and energy of the coastline and landscape. I live in Bournemouth and find plenty of inspiration around me, often sketching in all weathers on cliff tops, at beaches, in the New Forest and other beautiful places! When there is a wonderful contrast of light due to a moody sky or bright dappled sunshine glowing through the trees against shaded areas, I find pure joy in painting these dramatic scenes. I explore painting the quirky shapes and forms that nature provides with an imaginative style using beautiful colours.”
