I started painting with oils five years ago, following a successful career as a graphic designer and business owner in the North East Taking a break from the business to have children, I decided to change direction and move from working on a screen to enjoying the freedom that paint allows, expressively capturing the landscapes around
Passionate about the texture and layering that oils enable, I enjoy painting landscapes, particularly big skies, mountains and water. As I also live in the Lake District and the North east of England much of my work is influenced by this scenery. Keen on travel, I love to capture the places I visit and am naturally drawn to mountainous, remote places.
I am keen on capturing the changing nature of the weather on the landscape, whether it is catching the light and shadows on a mountainside, or the little glimpse of sunlight through the clouds. Combining a love of the outdoors with my passion for painting, I often sit in a kayak in the middle of a lake to capture the sunset and shadows reflecting in the water, or walk to the top of the fells to capture the big skies and views.
