About The Artist
Born in Manchester, England, my love of art began at an early age. I was greatly influenced by the beautiful English gardens, rolling countryside and historic villages. I am an avid gardener and have been greatly inspired by the gardens I have created at our homes over the years. You will see many of these themes throughout my work. Although I did not initially pursue a career in the arts, I rediscovered my passion for painting when my children were grown. I began to pursue it seriously, taking classes and workshops and spending many hours painting and drawing. I discovered my love of watercolors and now work almost exclusively with them. My goal when I paint is to share the beauty and experiences of the places and things I love.I want to take you to places you may not have been and show you things you may not have noticed. Through the use of my colors, lighting and composition I create a peaceful simplicity in my work. After living in New Jersey and Michigan for many years, I moved to Marco Island, Florida in 2001. I also enjoy part of the year at my home in Yorkshire, England. I love to travel and I continue to be inspired by the places and things around me. I hope you find as much enjoyment in viewing my watercolor paintings as I had in creating them.
