I am a self-taught mixed-media artist with an intuitive way of working. My work is bright and full of optimism stemming as it does from recovery and it is my great joy to share that hope with others. These colourful paintings are the best way for me to articulate my excitement in the mental, spiritual or physical healing potential of my subjects. From wildflowers to wildlife to coastal landscapes I aim to stimulate the viewer with invigorating colour combinations. Textural work also has a place in my practice with its interactive appeal that might engage a person with the subject. My desire is to enhance public awareness of the Wales Coast and all its jewels.
