Norfolk is a county I visit frequently and I really appreciate its painterliness. In particular, I love the little village of Blakeney which I think is one of the most picturesque seaside places in England - no matter what the weather!
The River Cam
I have had an abiding interest in painting and drawing throughout my life. I enjoy wherever it takes me and how it extends me as a person.
As a New Zealander living here permanently, the beauty and seasonal variations of the British and European landscape never fails to enthral me.
I enjoy depicting found subjects in natural settings and occasionally, portraiture, still life, life-drawing and illustration. I use varied media - wet - particularly oils, acrylics and gouache and dry, including charcoal, ink and pastels. I enjoy experimenting with water colour, mixed media and recently, developing skills in using my iPad for sketching.
I belong to the Well Oiled Painting Group here in Cambridge.
