pen and watercolour painting, printmaking
Colourful, detailed pen and watercolour paintings. Hand-printed linocuts. Tranquil gardens, old buildings and scenes of chickens and geese. Cards.

    I am inspired by local gardens and old buildings, and also enjoy sketching chickens and geese going about their business.

    Many of my works are in pen and watercolour. I use a dip pen to pick out the textures of trees and the contrasting shapes of flowers and leaves, and then add watercolour.

    Since gaining a certificate in printmaking at the Curwen Print Study Centre, I now create hand-coloured linocuts as well as paintings.

    I trained in Graphic Design at St. Martin’s but nowadays concentrate on producing original artworks. Several of my pictures have been taken abroad as memories of the English countryside.

    I exhibit regularly with the Cambridge Drawing Society and the Society of East Anglian Watercolourists as well as Open Studios. In June this year I have a solo exhibition at Saffron Walden library.
