I've been a teacher of Art in secondary schools and more recently, a freelance artist. I have also been a Yoga and Ayurveda Therapist for many years now and I find that when I paint, it completely absorbs me, much like a meditation. With a passion for dogs and other animals I totally immerse myself in the whatever I am painting and enjoy bringing my subject matter to life.
I tend to use mixed media these days to achieve the illustrative look I'm aiming for. I have always been able to achieve a good likeness, but I want more than that now. I expect my pictures to have individual character and by mixing up watercolour, pastels and acrylics, I find I can bring something more to an image than merely a photographic likeness.
I can reproduce anything that you like; pets, people, places and anything else that is dear to you and that you would like to capture for your own enjoyment or perhaps give as a gift to someone you love.
Each picture that I paint will be accompanied by a digital image that you can reproduce as you wish. Previous customers have used their images to promote their business and as personal greetings cards.
