My interest in watercolour began in the late 80’s when I visited North Norfolk for the first time. I was struck by the unspoilt nature of the area, the huge and magnificent skies and beaches.

Seeing the sand being lifted and swirling in the sky by the vagaries of the weather, fascinates me. Watching rain approaching and the way it affects the sea and the landscape I find awe inspiring. Hot summer days, the peace and quiet and utter stillness keep me there. Listening to the seabirds as the sun sets, I turn my back keeping the image fresh in my mind, drive home, distil the image and paint. Wonderful!

Biography
I trained at the Central School of Art and Design, doing a BA Hons degree in Set & Costume Design. After working for many years in the industry, I turned my back on London and came back to the countryside. I have painted watercolours since l987 and am now embarking on oil painting. Co-founder of Artworks, I became a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2000. I exhibit widely in the East Anglian region.
