I enjoy working in the Creative Arts as an Artist and Designer, Digital Artist, Illustrator and Writer. I also love doing Art Demonstrations and teaching Art Workshops!
It is fun to be able to create art for different reasons. I love the technical challenges of my work as an illustrator where I am often asked to visually represent complex technical information. This requires a knowledge of anatomy and physiology, and skills in a variety of art media from the traditional (pencil, charcoal, paints etc) to computer graphics. I also draw and paint every day; whether for exhibitions, gallery shows or on commission. Working as a designer is a challenge I also enjoy as I help a client visualize and then realize their dream. Writing is pure joy.
My favourite subjects to draw and paint? I love portraiture and figurative artwork. I am passionate about my work as an animal and wildlife artist and I adore botanical art.
I am passionate about Wildlife Conservation and am honoured to be a Signature Member of Artists for Conservation.
I enjoy exhibiting with my friends in the Association of Animal Artists (AAA); an active Art Association which supports animal charities and wildlife conservation, runs exhibitions, workshops, reference visits, Art Rendezvous and a en plein air painting group. I am proud to be a Founder Member, former Chair and an Honorary Life Member of AAA.
My love of Fine Art and the wish to learn more about the industry led to my applying for and gaining membership of the Fine Art Trade Guild. In 2011, I was thrilled to be invited to sit on the national Fine Art Committee of the Guild and during 2012 I was honoured to be elected as Chair of the Fine Art Committee and also as North West Branch Master.
It is always a great thrill to be able to combine my love of art with my writing, which is why I enjoy being a Regular Contributor (Artist/Writer)to Leisure Painter Magazine and an Art Demonstrator/ Tutor for The Artist and Leisure Painter Magazines. I am honoured to be a Full Member of the Writers Guild.
All my reference and source material is my own. My inspiration comes from a life of travel and a love of animals and nature. I have collections of my own old and new photos, sketches and doodles, colour notes and scribbled ideas….and every now and then I find I am suddenly inspired to launch into a new project!
I work with many different types of media ranging from pencil, charcoal and pastel to delicate watercolours, acrylics and oils. I can work in all sizes…but do enjoy the challenge of a large oil painting…..especially using my favourite Michael Harding oils!
Having had a change of career mid life from nursing and midwifery to ‘My Life in Art’, whilst coping with a busy family life I have experienced the fun and the challenges of trying to make a living as an artist…..and I have made many friends along the way.
I love writing about Art, I love typing away on my computer for hours on end working on my novel and on a number of children’s books I am writing and illustrating. I am honoured to be a Full Member of the Writers Guild.
