Welcome to my Art website. Art has been my passion all my life, and in over 40 exhibitions in the UK, France and Spain I have enjoyed sharing my work with Art-lovers. I have a long list of satisfied customers for my paintings, hand-painted reproductions of Impressionist works, animal portraits and commissioned works.

I have won awards for my paintings and enjoyed teaching drawing and painting. I also ran a thriving Art Group which I founded 10 years ago, here on the Costa Blanca where I lived for thirteen years until Spring of this year, 2018. Since then I have lived in Alnwick, Northumbria, where my husband was taken ill and which we always visited every three months to see family, so it feels like coming home.

My inspiration is the beauty of Nature, which I aim to share with you through my art. As I love colour, light and movement, the subjects which I paint are ideal for me: horses, big cats, ballet and flamenco are among my very favourites. My style is a blend of realistic and Impressionistic. I want my paintings to give a joyful and uplifting feeling.
