Norfolk 2016

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 think the River Cam is a great subject to paint and don't envisage ever tiring of it.

New Zealand summer

I love depicting New Zealand subjects particularly if redolent of the beautiful, hot, settled, summers I remember well.  Typically my NZ pictures feature beach scenes or my friends' gardens.

I love engaging with a variety of subjects and experimenting with different media. It is so challenging and absorbing but also so enriching.

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.
